Major police investigation underway in Strathmore after man found dead

CALGARY- A large area in the town of Strathmore was blocked off by RCMP on Monday morning, after a man was found dead in an alley.

RCMP say the man was found around 7:30 a.m., and they are working to determine the cause of death.

Mounties and the Calgary Police major crimes unit put crime scene tape around 15 homes near Lakeside Boulevard, and went  door to door questioning residents.

An unmanned aerial system was also brought in by a forensic collision reconstruction unit, to take aerial photos and video of the neighbourhood.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, to determine if the death is suspicious.
