Saskatoon police probe suspicious death at motel on Idylwyld Drive
Officers taped off parts of the Northwoods Inn parking lot and Idylwyld Drive to investigate
Saskatoon police confirm an investigation is underway into what they are calling a suspicious death at the Northwoods Inn & Suites on Idylwyld Drive.
The same morning an officer at the scene told CBC News investigators are treating his death as suspicious. The forensic identification and major crimes units are investigating.
Greg Kunerd said he lives at the motel and was woken up Saturday morning by a commotion outside.
"There was some yelling and screaming early in the morning and then the police arrived knocking on everybody's door about an hour later," Kunerd said.
Kunerd said he'd heard somone got stabbed but police have not confirmed that to CBC.
Guests at the motel told CBC they are concerned because many of the people who live there know one another.
"There's never a dull moment that's for sure," Kunerd said of his life at the motel. "There's always something going on."
Police closed a portion of the northbound lane of Idylwyld Drive between 25th Street West and 27th Street West on Saturday morning. They also taped off part of the parking lot at the Northwoods Inn & Suites.
