The death of a Maskwacis teen, who died from a head injury in 2011, has been ruled accidental.
The report from a public fatality inquiry, held last October into the death of Edwin Fenton Cattlemen, 16, determined his death was accidental after he fell down a set of stairs.
Cattlemen, who was intoxicated by ethanol and cannabis, struck his head when he fell down stairs attached to an outside deck at a house in Maskwacis on May 23, 2011.
He was found unconscious by people at the house who called the police.
Cattlemen was transported by STARS air ambulance to the University of Alberta Hospital where he died the next day from blunt head injury with a massive acute subdural hematoma and massive brain edema.
RCMP initially treated the death as suspicious, but after investigation concluded the death was accidental.
Provincial Court Judge Gordon Yake ruled that based on the evidence presented at the inquiry he was satisfied with the conclusion made by police.
No recommendations were made to prevent similar incidents.
A fatality inquiry is held to establish the cause, manner, time, place and circumstances of death.
Fatality inquiries do not include findings of legal responsibility.
