Foul play not suspected in student death

On Sunday, February 3rd at 8:35 in the morning the Cranbrook RCMP responded to a call from EMS advising of an unconscious male behind the Baker Street mall. When the officer arrived, the male was already in the ambulance and being transported to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. The person who reported the incident told police that he has been walking behind the Baker Street mall and came upon the young man who was laying on the ground. When he couldn’t wake him, he called 911 and covered him with a blanket. Police were subsequently advised that the man died later in the morning.

The young man was determined to be 19-year-old international student Conrad Antonio, who was attending the College of The Rockies. The RCMP in assistance to the Office of the Coroner, have investigated the death and foul play is not suspected.

The Cranbrook RCMP continue to assist the Coroners Office with their investigation and are asking for anyone who may have seen Conrad between Saturday, February 2nd and Sunday, February 3rd, 2013, to call the Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471 or the Coroners office at 1-888-991-2111.
