Melissa Mac Queen, 42, also found to be Macqueen on social media, has been charged with manslaughter in the death of 61-year-old Randy Garrett. Both lived in the village of Milden, where approximately 167 people call home.
Outlook RCMP, the RCMP Major Crime Unit South, the RCMP Forensic Identification Section and the Office of the Chief Coroner were investigating the death in the community.
On March 3, around 1:30 p.m. Outlook RCMP responded to a complaint of a deceased 61-year-old male – Garrett – inside a residence on the 700 block of Saskatchewan Avenue in Milden. His family has been notified.
The circumstances surrounding the death continue to be investigated. Residents of Milden were expected to continue to see an increased police presence in the community as a result of the on-going investigation.
An autopsy was done, but the RCMP did not say how Garrett died.
In the meantime, Mac Queen appeared in a Saskatoon provincial court on Monday, March 8 by video from the Pine Grove Correctional Centre. Mac Queen was remanded until Wednesday when she returns for a potential bail hearing.
The Crown requested that Mac Queen have no contact with nine people. The accused, Mac Queen, agreed, with the one exception that she not contact her daughter. Melissa told judge Sanjeev Anand that her daughter now has control of her accounts and affairs, and she would be arranging legal counsel.
The Crown responded that the investigation is still in its early stages and that Mac Queen’s daughter may be a “vital witness” to what happened.
Judge Anand allowed her to have contact with her daughter.
