Easterville, mb

A man's death on Chemawawin Cree Nation in Manitoba is under investigation as a homicide, RCMP say.

Information on the case was scarce, as police are not saying who died nor providing any additional information about why they believe the death was by foul play.

Police said officers from the Chemawawin detachment are being assisted by the RCMP's Serious Crime Unit, and a forensics unit.

They said they learned about the man's death around 2:30 a.m. CT Saturday morning.

The community is about 460 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg.
