  RCMP say multiple factors under consideration in Broncos' team bus crash As news on the extent of Friday night’s Humboldt Broncos crash spread, the question remains about the cause of the collision that killed 15 players of the small-town hockey team, and injured several others. RCMP have released few details, saying that traffic analysts continue to investigate potential causes, including road, weather, mechanical and driver conditions. "This is a very involved investigation and, due to the large amount of evidence, information, and the number of victims, this work will take some time," RCMP Saskatchewan Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki told reporters on Saturday afternoon.

The Moose Jaw Police Service was called in to investigate the circumstances of an in-custody death in Meadow Lake , Sask . Meadow Lake RCMP said the man was found unresponsive in a cell just before 6 a.m. Tuesday.

An investigation is underway after a 25-year-old man was found dead in the cellblock area at the Meadow Lake, Sask. RCMP detachment.

According to an RCMP news release issued Thursday, the Meadow Lake man was found “unresponsive” shortly before 6 a.m. on Tuesday. Paramedics were called, and the man was pronounced dead on scene.

As per the RCMP’s independent external investigation policy, the Moose Jaw Police Service has been asked to conduct an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the in-custody sudden death.

In addition, the RCMP has requested the Ministry of Justice to appoint an independent observer. As the matter is the subject of an external investigation, no further information is being made available by RCMP at this time.
