    The Office of the independent surveys (EIB) will focus on the death of a 43 year old male that occurred in the wake of a police response to Inukjuak, in Nord-du-Québec.

    According to a press release obtained by the EIB, police officers from the regional police forces, Kativik (KPRF) intervened last Thursday for a case of domestic violence. On their arrival at the place where the alleged victim had taken refuge, the police found that the woman had facial injuries and that she was intoxicated. Given that the lady did not speak English nor French, and it was therefore impossible to take his statement, the peace officers would come to their home, after having sent to the hospital.

    On their arrival at the victim’s home, police reportedly found a man who had the head and torso drawn on a piece of furniture. The agents have not managed to wake him up and would have left the scene. On Friday, a police officer would be returned to the couple’s home and allegedly found the man in the same position as the day before.

    Six investigators of the EIB have been in charge of the investigation, which is working with the Sûreté du Québec.
