The Saskatchewan RCMP says it is investigating a death that may have occurred at the Timber Bay Children’s Home almost half a century ago.

Mounties say a complaint about the alleged incident, which is said to have happened in 1974, first came forward in October of last year and a recorded statement was taken earlier this month.

The force says this is the only case involving a former residential school it is currently investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Saskatchewan RCMP Historical Case Unit at 310-RCMP.
