The death of a former North Okanagan man in Saskatchewan is being investigated by Kindersley RCMP as suspicious.
Dylan Cordell Hanna, 19, who listed having attended Kalamalka Secondary School on his Facebook page, was found unresponsive lying on the ground outside his temporary work residence Sunday at 6 a.m. local time.
Hanna was transported to the Kindersley Hospital where attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.
Kindersley RCMP has since entered into this sudden death investigation and are treating it as suspicious.
Staff-Sgt. Geoff Buxcey described the residence where Hanna had been living at as a job site, a multi-dwellings trailer park located in the industrial area on the west side of Kindersley, located two hours southwest of Saskatoon.
A number of employees from various oil field companies reside in this complex when working in the Kindersley area.
“I believe he’d been in Saskatchewan for about a year,” said Buxcey, adding the death is being treated as suspicious because they’re not sure how he died at this point.
“He had a Saskatchewan driver’s licence.”
Kindersley RCMP, along with Major Crimes, Saskatoon Forensic Identification Services, and the Provincial Coroner’s Office, are assisting in the investigation into this matter.
An autopsy is scheduled for later this week.
