RCMP officers work at the scene of a suspicious death in MacGregor Monday.

MACGREGOR -- RCMPàcontinue to investigate a "suspicious death" Monday in a small home near MacGregor's elementary and high schools.

Police remain tight-lipped about their investigation and have not released any information on the deceased.

Neighbours say yellow police tape was put up around the orange and green house Monday morning, but they declined to comment further.

Three marked police vehicles were on scene in the afternoon as well as the forensic identification unit. Investigators and RCMP continued to move in and around the property.

Inside the house, at least one officer wore a full white suit, including what appeared to be a respirator over his mouth while spraying a substance onto the floor.

One media report said police dogs were used to search the house and a drone was used to take photos.

Despite the crime scene being right outside the schools, staff and students say their school day proceeded as usual.

Students said they rarely saw the older man who lived in the house.

"I saw him come out to mow his grass once," one student said. "But he doesn't seem to leave his house at all."

Several students agreed that nobody appears to come or go from the small house regularly.
