Other News Releases Related to Case 09-PCD-097
Four investigators and two forensic investigators from the SIU probed the circumstances of this occurrence.
Director Scott concluded, â€œAll the evidence gathered as a result of the investigation suggests that Mr. Feick died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The subject officer simply happened to be the closest of a group of officers responding to a call. The officers had nothing to do with Mr. Feick's decision to end his life.â€
The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must
- consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence in connection with the incident under investigation
- depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
- report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
