The RCMP have determined through investigation and consultation with RCMP Major Crimes and the Chief Medical Examiner that the death of a 31 year-old Stettler male was not found to be criminal.

This investigation remains ongoing, however the Stettler RCMP wish to confirm that the public need not be concerned about any criminality in relation to this very unfortunate event.
The name of the deceased will not be provided by the RCMP. No further information will be updated on this investigation.
