An RCMP major crimes unit has been called in to investigate the death of a man at a downtown Yellowknife apartment building.

In a short news release, police said officers had discovered the man’s body after being called to the apartment building early on Saturday morning.

The building in question was not specified and no information about the man or the cause of death was given.


“The death is considered suspicious,” RCMP stated. A forensic identification unit has also been called to the scene.
