RCMP have recovered the body of a 21-year-old male after he was found dead lying in the northbound lane of Highway 59 early Sunday morning, August 19, 2018.
Police say that the male victim had left a location near where his body was found to go for a walk along the highway just after 1:00 am.
An investigation has led police to believe that the male was struck by multiple vehicles before a witness pulled over to help and called police.
Police say the victim was from Selkirk and was hit between 1:00 am and 2:30 am. Anyone with information or who may have seen something is asked to call investigators at 204-482-1222
