LETHBRIDGE – The death of a 47-year old Lethbridge man has been ruled non-criminal, following an autopsy Tuesday morning (Aug. 8) at the Medical Examiner’s Office in Calgary.

Police were called to an alley along the 1600 block of 5 A Avenue North on Sunday (Aug. 6) at approximately 2:50 p.m., after the body was discovered by a passerby who called 911.

While few details were revealed, the passerby informed Lethbridge News Now that the man appeared to be Caucasian and was wearing a tank top and shorts, but no shoes, and bright white socks.

Prior to the results of the autopsy, police had considered the death suspicious, based on the location and timing when the body was found.

Because the death is non-criminal, police say no further information will be released.
