Slave Lake RCMP confirmed last week that a young man died while at the Northern Lakes College residence in Slave Lake.

Sgt. Don Racette said the cause is under investigation and is not considered suspicious.

Racette did not indicate what the cause might have been. He said nobody has been arrested and charges are not being contemplated.

Dead is a male Racette estimates to be “approximately 23 years old.”

The matter was reported to RCMP “around supper time,” on Jan. 28.

The victim was not a resident of one of the college housing units, Racette said, but was visiting there. He was “from the area.”
