  • Print

A Brandon man's death is being treated as suspicious by police after his body was found inside a Victoria Avenue home.

Firefighters were called to a home in the 600 block of Victoria Avenue just after 1 a.m. Saturday, after smoke was seen. They were able to extinguish a small fire and the body of a male was later found inside the home.

Brandon police have released few details about the death but say they are treating it as suspicious.

Sgt. Mike Melanson of the Brandon Police Service said the body has been identified as a 39-year-old Brandon man. He could not say whether or not the fire caused the man's death.

"We'll release more information earlier this week once the investigation gets going," he said. "The investigation is very young right now.

"To protect the interest of the investigation, that's all we can release."

Police continue to investigate.

Anyone with information on unsolved crimes is asked to call Brandon police at 204-729-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 204-727-8477 (TIPS).
