One day after a man’s body was discovered on Highway 4 just south of Battleford, RCMP have released the man’s identity.
The body of 33-year-old Merle Curley from Mosquito First Nation was found by a driver early Wednesday morning and reported to RCMP.
Officials believe a driver hit Curley then left the scene.
Curley’s family hopes by releasing his identity someone with information about his death will come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Battlefords RCMP at 306-446-2017 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
