People want to know

It’s not every week that firefighters show up at a wildfire and find a dead body. It’s understandable that people want answers to the obvious questions, such as how did it happen and why.

The ‘who’ we know. Darren Dawson, age 30. Resident of Alberta.

How he got there (Widewater) and whether the fire was related to the presence of a dead body are very much the subject of speculation in the community. The RCMP’s Major Crimes Unit is on the case, we are told. They have their methods and their reasons for not saying much. We have reason to believe they were checking out an unoccupied house in Widewater for suspected squatters, but not even that has been confirmed.

As for all the other rumours….we’ll leave that be for now.
