(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A very tragic and shocking scene has developed in a north side neighbourhood today.
An anonymous tipster tells us that a 911 call was made when some REAL Concerned Citizens were walking through Valley Park and to their utter disbelief, noticed a male in his early 30’s who was deceased. It was not a suspicious death.
Officers from the Thunder Bay Police Service along with paramedics from Superior North EMS responded to the scene.
Police are working hard to investigate the situation and eventually release the scene.
The general public is being asked to avoid the park for the time being so that officers can conduct their tasks as efficiently and properly s possible.
Since TRCCTB.COM took matters into their own hands regarding reporting news, we have noticed that we are hearing about more and more suicides as time goes by. Even just a year ago, suicides were a rare event. Lately they seem to be happening every 3 to 6 weeks.
This rise in the suicide rates, at least from what we get information from, only highlights the already noticeable severe lack in mental health services which also includes addiction services.
Anyone with photos of the police presence is asked to text them to 807-355-8917 or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Just to be clear, we do not want any photos that contain the body, just the police cruisers and the park in the background.
Are you or someone you know struggling with depression? There is people who want to help you overcome obstacles you may be facing. Call the good people down at the Thunder Bay Counselling Centre at 807-684-1880. They will get you started along your path to conquering your mental health.
Perhaps we could brainstorm some ideas in the comments section about how we can persuade our local, provincial and federal politicians to address this issue. Ignoring the lack of supports and services for people who are addicted and/or depressed is not a solution. It hasn’t work thus far and will definitely not work going ahead.
