RCMP Search and Rescue discovered the body of 41-year-old Gerald Anaskan in a Grenfell slough on Monday morning.
Gerald Anaskan, of Regina, was last seen late Wednesday, April 4, in the Grenfell area. Anaskan was travelling from Winnipeg to Regina, but abandoned his mini-van west of Broadview on Highway 1.
RCMP search and rescue efforts began at approximately 10 a.m. on April 9, with a command post temporarily established at Schlamp’s Tire.
RCMP SAR located Anaskan’s body later that Monday morning. The discovery was made in a slough just off a service road adjacent to Highway 1 near the east entrance of the community.
Members of the Broadview RCMP and the Regina Major Crimes Unit South were on scene for a portion of the week investigating the death in conjunction with the Provincial Coroner’s office. An RCMP Forensic Identification Specialist was also on scene on Monday to assist with the investigation.
An autopsy determined the death to be non-suspicious; although the cause of death will not be released by RCMP.
