Preliminary investigation indicates the death may be related to a drug overdose and the investigation is ongoing.

Although there is no indication this death is related to other suspected overdoses reported in Alberta over the weekend, RCMP warn the public that illicit substances may be associated with drugs that may be laced with lethal quantities of opioid-related substances such as fentanyl, carfentanil or methamphetamines.

If anyone has information about this incident, please contact Piikani RCMP at 403-965-2000 or your local police.

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com, or by using the P3 Tips app.
