The coroner’s office has concluded an investigation into the death of a 22-year-old woman on New Year’s Day.
The investigation determined that Rudy Lynn Kishayinew’s cause of death was hypothermia and a contributing factor was combined drug intoxication – alcohol and meth.
Kishayinew’s body was found in the 1500-block 20th Street West on Jan. 1. Temperatures that night dropped to -30 degrees with the wind chill.
A friend of Kishayinew spoke out after her death, claiming she has been kicked out of the hospital after trying to make a phone call.
However, officials told Global News on Wednesday that surveillance video provided to them showed no evidence to suggest Kishayinew attended St. Paul’s Hospital.

The Saskatoon Police Service received public calls for further investigation into the sudden death back in January. A witness, who was in the company of Kishayinew the previous evening, was interviewed multiple times by police.
Police said that given this evidence and results of an autopsy completed on Jan. 5, the death was found to be non-criminal in nature.
