An RCMP report says the Regina Police did not meet professional standards when it investigated the sudden death of Nadine Machiskinic.
On Thursday, Regina police released a redacted copy of Independent File Review: Sudden Death Investigation of Nadine Machiskinic, a report by RCMP dated Feb. 21,2018. The document was the subject of a freedom of information request, according to a police news release.
"The reviewers do not support the sudden death investigation of Nadine Machiskinic as meeting the standards of a professional, sudden death investigation," the report says.
The report said this finding is a direct result of the absence of a "Command Triangle" and an effective case management system to manage the investigation.
Machiskinic, an Indigenous mother of four, was found severely injured in Regina's Delta Hotel and died in hospital in January 2015.
