Police now treating Hay River man’s 2014 death as homicide

After receiving “new information”, police in Hay River are now treating the 2014 death of George Milukshuk as homicide.

The 59-year-old died in February last year.

At the time, RCMP in the town decided the circumstances of Milukshuk’s death were not suspicious.

However, in a statement late on Monday, police said new evidence had come to light.

“New information has come forward, and the circumstances of the death of George Milukshuk are now being re-examined,” said a police statement.

RCMP will not divulge the new information they’ve received, nor any details of Milukshuk’s death.

Milukshuk, a former resident of Ptarmigan Crescent, worked for a number of years in the mining industry.
