Military police are investigating the death of a soldier at a military base in Edmonton, a military spokesman said Sunday.

The soldier, whose identity has not been made public, was discovered Saturday in his room at an Edmonton Garrison barracks. The incident is now being investigated by military police, Capt. Mark Peebles of Land Force Western Area told the Canadian Press.

Peebles declined to provide more details, but said the military has notified the soldier's family and are providing support to them.
