A member of the Winnipeg Police Service has died a day after being charged with possession of child pornography.
Manitoba RCMP executed a search warrant at a home in Île-des-Chênes on Thursday following complaints from the RCMP National Child Exploitation Crime Centre about child pornography being accessed in the area.
Yvan Corriveau, 39, of Île-des-Chênes, was arrested at the scene and charged with four counts of child pornography.
He was released to appear in court at a later date.
On Friday, Winnipeg police said they learned that Const. Corriveau had passed away. His death isn’t considered to be criminal in nature.
Police say Corriveau was a 15-year member of the service.
