The RCMP have confirmed that the death of a teen found in an alleyway in Viking, Sunday was non-criminal.
Katelynn Berrecloth, a Grade 12 student from Sedgewick, was found dead Sunday night near a home where she attended a wedding reception the night before, according to police.
She was found lying in the snow wearing clothing that was inappropriate for the winter weather.
An autopsy on Tuesday determined the cause of death was non-criminal in nature.
A crisis response team including several grief counsellors were brought to Berrecloth’s school on Monday to help students and staff. A board has been set up at the school to allow friends to post messages and memorials.
