RCMP and Stellarton Police are investigating a suspicious death. Last night around 10:40 p.m., Stellarton Police responded to a call of an injured man at a home on Maple Street. The man was taken by EHS to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
After talking to witnesses, police found a dead man in a nearby home. The RCMP’s Northeast Nova Major Crimes and Forensic Identification Units were called in to assist with the investigation.
