RCMP investigating suspicious death in Normandeau

Red Deer RCMP are investigating a suspicious death in the Normandeau neighbourhood.

Red Deer RCMP are investigating a suspicious death in the Normandeau neighbourhood.

Police were called to a residence in the area about 1:05 p.m. on Monday with a report of a deceased 45-year-old woman.

The death is being treated as suspicious pending the outcome of an autopsy, which is scheduled for Tuesday, said RCMP media liaison Cpl. Kathe DeHeer.

Two police cruisers could be seen parked outside an apartment complex on Noble Avenue near Nolan Street early Monday evening.

Police were releasing few details about the death and wouldn’t say who discovered the body.

DeHeer said typically a death is treated as suspicious when police find something out of the ordinary at the scene and want to ensure that any potential evidence is preserved should it prove to be crime-related.

“It’s better to treat it as suspicious right from the onset rather than to try have to go back and recover evidence that may have been lost because we didn’t.”

Red Deer RCMP’s general investigative and forensic identification sections and the Major Crimes Unit out of Calgary are investigating.
