Body behind McDonald’s wasn’t found for 10 days following fire: Lethbridge police

Police in Lethbridge believe a body found in a shed behind a McDonald’s on June 14 has been there for at least 10 days after a fire was reported.

The body of a 33-year-old Lethbridge man was found at around 12:30 p.m. on University Drive after restoration crews were called in to repair the shed damaged in a suspicious fire on July 3.

After staff at the McDonald’s reported the fire around 11 p.m., they mentioned an earlier report of a break-in after finding a broken lock on the shed that morning. The fire was then deemed suspicious.

After an autopsy was conducted, investigators say the body was in the shed when that fire happened, but aren’t sure if that’s what killed him.

They add they await toxicology testing, which is “not anticipated for several months.”

Police say firefighters didn’t find the body due to debris in the shed.

Meanwhile, police say they won’t be releasing any more information as they say there is no evidence the man’s death is criminal.
