A man found by police deceased inside a Stonebridge home is Saskatoon’s first homicide victim of the year.
City police were sent to the suite, located inside a multi-unit building on Cope Crescent, just before noon Sunday 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 Wednesday, police said the case is now considered a homicide.
Few other details, including autopsy results, have yet to be released.
