Death of 3-year-old in Little Grand Rapids now a homicide: RCMP
Forensic and major crime investigators have left the community
Manitoba RCMP say the death of a three-year-old in Little Grand Rapids First Nation is now being investigated as a homicide.
The major crime unit and forensic services unit were sent to the community to investigate the death. RCMP said in a release the investigators have since left Little Grand Rapids, which is about 265 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.
On Wednesday afternoon, police said no arrests have been made.
Last Friday, RCMP said the boy was unresponsive when he was brought into to the nursing station and was later pronounced dead.
An autopsy has been completed.
Manitoba Minister of Families Heather Stefanson said Tuesday the child was not in the care of Child and Family Services.
The Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth is reviewing the death.
