A longtime Winnipeg police officer is dead after being charged with possessing child pornography.
Winnipeg police say 39-year-old Yvan Corriveau was found dead Friday morning and his death is not considered criminal.
Manitoba RCMP say they received several complaints from the RCMP National Child Exploitation Crime Centre. Officers executed a search warrant at a home in Ile De Chenes Thursday, where Corriveau was arrested on four charges, including possession of child pornography, accessing child pornography, making available child pornography and making written child pornography.
He was later released after his arrest on a judge’s order, before being found dead.
