Two people have been charged and arrested as the result of continued investigation by police and the Saskatchewan Coroners Service.

Police began the investigation on the day Beatty was found dead at 5:15 p.m., when police were dispatched to Greenberg Park on the 1900 block of Broder Street where Regina Fire and Protective Services were already on scene and EMS had confirmed the person to be deceased.

Police say at that stage, they had very limited information and no apparent crime scene, making the death investigation more complex.
