Sask. woman's death prompts RCMP major crimes unit investigation
A woman's death in Choiceland, Sask. has prompted an RCMP major crimes unit investigation.
Around 1:45 a.m. Friday, Nipawin RCMP and paramedics responded to a home on Railway Avenue East after the woman's death was reported.
A person close to the victim says she was pregnant and preparing the home for the baby.
“She was going to go pick up the bassinet mattress at the post office,” he told CTV News.
People who knew the victim say she was a kind soul and will be greatly missed.
“Loved family, loved her friends. If there was something to do, she was always there with her family. She was family first always,” Loretta Johnson said.
One person was taken into custody at the scene. There is no threat to the public, but the death is being treated as suspicious, according to RCMP.
RCMP could be seen outside a home in Choiceland Friday morning. The community is approximately 90 kilometres east of Prince Albert.
The Saskatchewan RCMP's Major Crimes Unit South is leading the investigation.
In a news release, RCMP said the investigation is still in its early stages and an update will be provided when available.
