The Regina Police Service, in conjunction with the Office of the Chief Coroner, is continuing its investigation into a suspicious death after the discovery of a deceased person in a house in the 1100 block of Cameron Street on Friday, December 14, 2012. Investigators have now confirmed that the deceased person is a female. Investigators still require more information in order to confirm identity and age of the deceased female. The Coroner has ordered an autopsy, which is scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday, December 18th). It is hoped this process will confirm identity as well as inform the investigation as to cause and manner of death.
The Regina Police Service recognizes that the unexplained death of any person generates anxiety among the public, particularly the families of any missing persons. Investigators are working diligently with the Office of the Chief Coroner to confirm identity in order to provide closure to one family and some relief to others.
Police are still holding the residence in the 1100 block of Cameron Street until more is known about the circumstances of this death. It is still considered a suspicious death. Anyone who has information is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 777-6500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
