Police watchdog clears Thompson RCMP officers of any role in February 2020 death of woman in custody

Manitoba’s police watchdog has concluded that Thompson RCMP officers’ actions or inactions did not play a role in the death of a 44-year-old woman who died in one of the detachment’s drunk tanks on Feb. 1, 2020.

The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba (IIU), which investigates serious incidents involving on- and off-duty police officers in the province, said in its investigation report released Aug. 26 that the woman’s cause of death was a combination of acute alcohol intoxication and a subdural hematoma – a collection of blood outside the brain, usually caused by a head injury.
