RPS said on Tuesday it does not have evidence that would indicate the death was the result of any criminal act.

Since the woman was briefly in the care of officers, the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice, as per protocol, has appointed two independent observers to the investigation.

RPS said it’s working in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Coroner’s Service. The cause of death was not released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact RPS at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
