Thompson RCMP press release sign

The remains found in the Burntwood River on September 28, 2022, have been identified as Steven Linklater, 62, whom RCMP had been investigating as missing since September 13, 2022.

Criminality was not a factor in his death.

On September 28, 2022, at approximately 1:00 pm, Thompson RCMP received a report that the body of a male was found in the Burntwood River in Thompson, Manitoba, just west of the Miles Hart Bridge. The body was located by a group of community members from Gods Lake Narrows who were conducting a search for a missing person from that community.

An autopsy will be conducted to confirm the identity of the remains.

The investigation continues.
