RCMP in New Brunswick have concluded a three-month investigation into the death of a 34-year-old man from Keswick Ridge.


Police were called to a residence on Route 616 at approximately 5:30 a.m. on February 26. When officers arrived, they discovered the body of a man inside the residence. A 30-year-old man from the Fredericton area was arrested that same day, questioned and later released.

Investigators from the Keswick RCMP and the RCMP’s Major Crime Unit have conducted a thorough investigation of the incident, according to Constable Jullie Rogers-Marsh. Taking all evidence into consideration and following discussions with the Crown Prosecutors’ Office, police determined that the 30-year-old man acted in self-defense and will not be charged in connection with the death.

RCMP say no other charges are anticipated in this case, and it is now concluded.
