How a troubled Nunavut teen escaped police custody and took his own life


After complaining for hours about a problem with the heat in his RCMP cell, Tommy Anguilianuk — a troubled young man with a history of suicidal thoughts — convinced a detachment guard to not only release him, but also lend him his shoes and a parka.
