Man Found Dead in Home With Meth Lab

Thursday, May 4, 2023 - Winnipeg Police are investigating the death of a man found in a home with a Clandestine Lab.

Tuesday afternoon police responded to a call on Foxmeadow Drive because someone reported an adult male who had been located dead within a home.

Once on scene police located the deceased 39-year-old male, and discovered an inoperative clandestine laboratory (methamphetamine lab) within the home. A specialized police Clandestine Lab Team, assisted by the WFPS Hazmat Team worked together to complete the decontamination purposes to remove the lab equipment/materials and subsequent dismantling of the lab.

Police said a 70-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man were evacuated from the home for their safety during the process. A third-party waste management company transported and safely disposed of all hazardous materials.

The deceased male was transported to the hospital pending autopsy. No other injuries were reported from the residents or attending WFPS and WPS members.
