Edmonton Police Commission responds to report on the death of Rhonda Auger

Statement: Edmonton Police Commission responds to report
on the death of Rhonda Auger 

A Public Fatality Inquiry report by Judge Renee Cochard has questioned the depth of investigation by the Edmonton Police Service into the death of Rhonda Auger on April 27, 2017. As standard practice, the EPS and in turn the Edmonton Police Commission were provided a copy of Judge Cochard’s report in advance of its release today. Resulting from the Inquiry report, EPS Chief Dale McFee has retained Richard Mirasty to conduct a Review of the EPS investigation into the death of Ms. Auger.

Edmonton Police Commission Chair Micki Ruth said today:

“Rhonda Auger has been remembered by her family as an outgoing and kind person who loved children, especially her grandchildren. Her untimely death was truly a tragedy.”

“Judge Cochard’s comments about the EPS investigation are serious enough to warrant a Review, and we endorse Chief McFee’s retention of Richard Mirasty, a fully independent third party, to conduct this Review. We look forward to receiving Mr. Mirasty’s findings, which will be made public subject to any privacy considerations.”
