Monday, May 04, 2009 at 14:29



The RCMP are calling a death on the Onion Lake First Nation last week “suspicious”.


Details are still sketchy, but the Mounties say the body of a 36-year-old Onion Lake man was found in a reserve residence last Thursday.


The force’s Saskatoon-based Major Crimes Section is assisting with the investigation.


Meanwhile, the RCMP say charges are pending following a fatal crash late last week in Onion Lake.


The victim was one of six people involved in a single vehicle rollover at around 7:30 Thursday night.


The other occupants were taken to hospital in Lloydminster.


The Mounties say alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash.
