Edmonton suspicious death victim identified

A man who died suspiciously in Fort McMurray over the weekend has been identified as a 19-year-old from Edmonton.

Mounties say Christopher Cardinal recently moved to Fort McMurray from Edmonton and he was not known to police.

Cardinal, who was discovered by a bus driver last Saturday, was found laying unconscious in a park located in a neighbourhood that was not known for crime, Mounties said.

Cardinal later died in hospital.

“Chris is a kind, soft spoken, fun loving man, who enjoyed just being himself, playing the guitar, drawing, and he liked his video games, he enjoyed listening to Johnny Cash…,” read a group page created by his family on Facebook.

“He is a great person.”

Police are also looking for the public’s help in finding a dark blue or black duffel bag that Cardinal may have been carrying before he was found.

Mounties believe the bag may have been picked up by a passerby who was on foot, or by someone who was on a snowmobile, as track were found by investigators nearby.

A cause of death has not been released.
