Coroner's inquest into death of man in RCMP cell hears sister's testimony on day one

The coroner's inquest into the death of Adla Pudlat, who died while in RCMP custody more than three years ago, is underway in Cape Dorset, Nunavut.

According to testimony heard Monday from the medical examiner, the RCMP, and independent investigators from Ottawa police services, Pudlat died by suicide while in RCMP cells in Cape Dorset.

Nunavut law requires an inquest in cases where someone dies in police custody. The inquest is looking into the circumstances around his death and how similar deaths can be prevented in the future.
