A medical examiner in Manitoba says his office has opened an investigation into the death and possible homicide of a man who died last year after suffering a heart attack while at the Winnipeg Forensic Medical Examiner Department.
In a statement to CBC News, Winnipeg forensic medical examiner Dan Phelan said he spoke with a doctor who said the man’s heart had stopped before he died and the heart had never stopped beating after he died.
Phelan told CBC News that he’s received no information from police about the circumstances surrounding the death.
