The death of a man found by police deceased inside a Stonebridge home is considered a homicide, Saskatoon police say.
City police were sent to the suite, located inside a multi-unit building on Cope Crescent, just before noon Jan. 7 to check on the 60-year-old’s welfare. The man, identified as John McPherson, was dead when officers arrived.
His death was initially believed to be suspicious, and on Jan. 10, police said the case is now considered a homicide.
Few other details, including autopsy results, have yet to be released.
--- Editor’s note (Jan. 26): Police initially stated the death was Saskatoon’s first homicide of 2018, but an update Jan. 26 clarified McPherson was killed Dec. 31, 2017.
