Winnipegosis RCMP are investigating a fatal incident on the Waterhen River

Winnipegosis RCMP and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner continue to investigate a fatal incident on the Waterhen River last Thursday (June 22).

Late Thursday night, Mounties received a report of a missing 37-year-old man, who was last seen riding a tube with a 21-year-old woman on the river earlier in the evening.

RCMP, along with first responder units from the Waterhen Fire Department, Waterhen CSO, and FNSO’s from the Ebb and Flow, Lake St. Martin and Skownan First Nations deployed watercraft into the river, to try and locate the man, and early Friday (June 23) afternoon, the body of the man, whose name has not been released, was found in the Waterhen River.
