RCMP are investigating a homicide in the northern Manitoba community of Shamattawa.
Shamattawa RCMP were called to a house around 6:30 a.m. on Friday, where they found the body of a 51-year-old man.
Chief Jeffery Napoakesik of the Shamattawa First Nation identified the man as Lawrence Redhead.
"He was a quiet person. He mostly kept to himself," Napoakesik said. "Everyone knew him. Everyone spoke to him and said ‘hi’ to him."
Shamattawa is located about 350 kilometres southeast of Churchill.
Shamattawa RCMP continue to investigate with help from the RCMP Winnipeg Serious Crime Unit, the RCMP Thompson Major Crime Unit, the RCMP Forensic Identification Section, the RCMP North District Crime Reduction Enforcement Support Team and other officers from the North District.
