PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. _ RCMP say there is nothing in their investigation so far to indicate that the death of a Saskatchewan man whose body was found in a burned-out car was a murder.

Brennan Ahenakew’s remains were discovered on the Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation in central Saskatchewan on May 10.

Ahenakew’s family has said the 20-year-old was murdered, but the RCMP says the initial findings of an autopsy, along with their investigation, show no sign of criminal involvement in the death.

Cpl. Rob King, a police spokesman, says they’ve spoken to several witnesses and followed up on all leads and rumours, and while their investigation is not yet complete nothing points to a homicide.

Ahenakew’s mother, Lisa Johnstone, said this week that she received taunts through social media Monday night from someone claiming to be her son’s killers.

The Mounties have said they don’t believe the messages have anything to do with Ahenakew’s death, but they’re looking into them as part of a separate investigation.

“The preliminary findings have revealed this was a good kid, but so far the investigation has revealed there was no foul play involved in his death,” said King. (CKBI)
