Drumheller RCMP are investigating the death of a 35-year- old Drumheller man and his three-year-old son, in what appears to be an apparent murder-suicide.
Police were called to a residence on 4th Street West in downtown Drumheller across the street from the Central School building where DCHS students are attending, on Sunday morning, September 28. Drumheller Emergency Services responded to the scene, and the Drumheller Fire Department was seen ventilating the house.
A release from the RCMP says their Major Crimes Unit is investigating, and that at no time were the residents of Drumheller at risk.
It has been reported the incident was at the home of Richard Saunders and his son Colton.
