Desmarais RCMP investigating ‘sudden death’ on Hwy. 754

Leader staff

RCMP are hoping dash camera footage from the early hours of July 31 on Hwy. 754 will give them some insight into what happened there.

All the RCMP revealed in a news release was that there was a “sudden death,” on 754 in the “Wabasca First Nation.” Nothing about how, or who.

The initial news release said the highway would be closed for some time.

A follow-up one, later that day, said the road was open, and made the plea for video footage from people who may have been driving in the area, specifically near Maxine Drive, between 3 a.m. and 5:30 a.m.

If you have any information that can assist police in this investigation, please contact the Desmarais RCMP at 780-891-3768.

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at or by using the ‘P3 Tips’ app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
