UPDATE: Major break expected today in North River death

Published on July 3, 2014

The Compass has learned a major break is expected today in the case of the suspicious death of a North River man, although RCMP have not released any details.

Dale Porter was found with serious injuries early Sunday, June 29, but later died.

To date, RCMP has not confirmed details of the case, including if there are suspects or witnesses to the incident or if there is any threat to those in the Conception Bay North community.

Although the details have not been available, the investigation has been ongoing.

For the second day in-a-row, a group of volunteers from the Avalon North Wolverines Search and Rescue unit are in the area of Porter’s home.

The Wolverines are not only trained in search and rescue, but also in collecting evidence. It is unknown how long they will be in the area.

The Compass will provide updates when they become available.
