Red Deer, Alberta – At approximately 7 am this morning, Red Deer RCMP responded to the report of a deceased man in a park in the Woodlea neighbourhood.
The body of an 88 year old man was discovered in the soccer field located north of 55 Street on 44 Avenue, and RCMP cordoned off the area while conducting their investigation; school was not in session at the time and there was no risk to the public. The investigation to date indicates that the death was not suspicious in nature, and next of kin have been notified. The area has since been re-opened to the public. Out of respect for the privacy of the grieving family, RCMP will not be issuing any further information on this file.
