Death at Northern College

A post-mortem is to be held in Sudbury Friday for a person who died at Northern College in Timmins on Wednesday.
Timmins Police Service was tight-lipped about details of the death, at press time.
Police officers had cordoned off an area of the college Wenesday afternoon and were restricting access in the southeast area of the campus, which contains some industrial shops.
A Timmins Police Service spokesperson would only say the death was “definitely a tragedy” and that no information would be released with respect to the identity of the deceased person.
Police confirmed that the death scene was investigated and then turned over to the coroner, Dr. K.C. Lim, once it was confirmed that no foul play was involved.
Police did admit that the Ministry of Labour might become involved in the investigation.
College president Michael Hill could not comment on whether the matter involved a student or staff member. He referred all inquiries to Timmins Police Service.
