The Regina Police Service, in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Coroners Service, has begun a death investigation after the discovery of a deceased male near Wascana Lake on Sunday.
On Sunday, September 13, 2020, at approximately 11:18 a.m., police were dispatched to an area along the north shore of Wascana Lake, between the waterfall and the marina. A caller to police indicated that there was a person lying on the shore, who was not moving or responding. The caller was in a watercraft on the lake, with a view of the shoreline not available to pedestrians or other recreational users of the park. Police arrived and located a male, who was confirmed deceased by EMS. The officers requested a Coroner as well as a Forensic Identification investigator to the scene. Investigation began to learn more about the circumstances of this person’s death.
The deceased male has been identified and his next of kin have been notified of his death. His name will not be released by police. The Coroner has ordered an autopsy. Although it is still early in this investigation, based on all available information, this does not appear to be a criminal matter. There will be further investigation, led by the Saskatchewan Coroners Service, in order to determine as closely as possible, the circumstances surrounding this death.
Anyone who may information to assist police and the Saskatchewan Coroners Service in this investigation is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
