RCMP continue to be tight-lipped about an investigation involving the suspicious death of a middle-aged man dropped off at Red Deer Regional Hospital on Saturday night.

RCMP continue to be tight-lipped about an investigation involving the suspicious death of a middle-aged man dropped off at Red Deer Regional Hospital on Saturday night.

On Tuesday, police made a public appeal as they were trying to locate a 1998 grey Jeep Grand Cherokee with Alberta licence BNW 1124.

On Wednesday, RCMP announced that they had located the vehicle but they have not said where it was found or why the death is suspicious.

Police have also not said where the deceased man was from and they have not publicly identified him.

The man was dropped off at the hospital at about 9:30 p.m. by unknown persons and pronounced deceased soon after.

Police were also looking to identify who was driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicle on Saturday and any passengers in the vehicle.

K Division media relations spokesperson Cpl. Laurel Scott said Wednesday that to provide any further information at this time might hinder the investigation.

They are working to having more information out perhaps in the next day or so, she said.

Police are still seeking public information on the case and no arrrests have been made, Scott said.

Red Deer RCMP and the Calgary Major Crimes Unit are investigating.

The RCMP are asking anyone who has any information about this case to contact Red Deer RCMP at 403-406-2589 or their local police detachment. If they wish to remain anonymous, they can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at
