At around 8:45 p.m., police were told about “suspicious activity in an apartment suite” near 80 Avenue and 105 Street.
Police found a dead person inside. The person has not yet been identified.
Homicide detectives took over the suspicious death investigation.
As of Monday, police tape was still up around the apartment.
An Edmonton police spokesperson said that the scene remains the site of “an active homicide investigation,” and that such probes can often be “resource heavy and typically require forensic analysis of the scene.”
Neighbours told Global News they saw police handcuff two women on Friday night. And, over the weekend, they said they saw a forensic team collecting evidence and a medical examiner there Saturday afternoon.
People living in the building next door said police are called weekly to that building.
Police have not yet released victim’s identity and say they will remain on scene for the next couple of days.
