Indigenous deaths prompt increased police patrols near river in Thunder Bay, Ont.


Thunder Bay police are increasing patrols near the McIntyre River where three First Nations boys were found dead between 2005 and 2009 and three more Indigenous people have died in recent months.

The increased police vigilance comes in response to a recommendation from a coroner's inquest into the boys' deaths, and those of four other First Nations students in the northwestern Ontario city.

The inquest ruled the cause of two of the deaths in the McIntyre River was undetermined, leaving the door open to a theory that the students may have been pushed into the water.
