A man found dead under a tent on the Saskatchewan side of Lake Superior has been identified as a member of the Canadian Forces.

Police in Fort Saskatchewan say they believe the man was a member and that he was found by a passerby who called 911 after finding him in the campground.

“We believe the deceased person was in his or her tent, but we have not been able to confirm that at this time,” said Lt.

Dale Jang with the Fort Saskatchewan Police.

“It is still early in the investigation and we would ask anyone with information to come forward.”

Police said they have yet to determine the cause of death.

They said the man’s death is under investigation and that the coroner will determine the causes of death later this week.

In a statement to CBC News, the RCMP said the investigation is ongoing and that police are asking anyone with additional information to call them.

The man’s family has said he was not homeless.

“Our deepest condolences go out to the family of this man who was a proud member of our Forces,” RCMP Sgt. Jason Dang said.

“He was an honourable member of this Canadian Armed Forces.

He served his country in uniform and he loved the outdoors.

We will continue to support and honour our veterans and our First Nations communities in our communities.”
