Autopsy needed to ID body

THE man who died in a house fire northeast of Winnipeg in the RM of Springfield early Saturday morning has not been positively identified.

The mobile home, located on a stretch of Edgewood Road just north of the hamlet of Hazelridge, was completely destroyed.

Neighbours said the mobile home where two brothers lived burned down extremely fast.

"It's very devastating," said one nearby resident, who was awakened just after 1:30 a.m.

"We went outside and (said), 'Where's the mobile home?' It was burned to the ground already."

The brothers, described as in their late 30s or early 40s, are said to have lived in the home for about 10 years.

Only one person was believed to be in the home at the time of the fire.

An autopsy will take place today, RCMP Sgt. Line Karpish.

"We won't have an identification until after the autopsy," she said.

A cause of the fire has not yet been determined, she said.

 

Young girls approached by suspicious man on Clifton

WINNIPEG police are looking for a suspicious man who approached a group of girls aged 10 and 11 in the 1000 block of Clifton Street late Thursday afternoon.

"He called them over. The girls ignored his attempt to get their attention and the male eventually walked away in a westbound direction on Sargent Avenue. The girls returned home safely and notified their parents," Const. Jason Michalyshen said Sunday.

Police described the man as 5-6 or 5-7 with a heavy build, dark complexion, greyish hair and a thin, grey moustache, wearing a dark grey/green winter jacket and a royal blue toque.

Anyone with information regarding this matter or further details regarding the identity of the suspicious man is asked to contact police at 204-986-2839.
