RCMP are still investigating the suspicious death of a 25-year-old man from Igloolik.
A family member has confirmed he was Joey Ammaq, a musician and member of the circus group, Artcirq.
Ammaq performed in the band Kikkukia.
As a member of Artcirq, he also performed with Solomon Uyarasuk, whose death in police custody in Igloolik two years ago was the subject of a recent coroner’s inquest.
Ammaq was found without vital signs in a residence on December 1.
He was taken to the local nursing station, where people tried to revive him.
He was later pronounced dead.
