Manitoba Foster Boy Dead

A foster teenaged boy is dead in Alonsa Manitoba. He is not named. In case he is in the news again, we will call him by the pseudonym Boy Alonsa.
RCMP investigate teen boy's sudden death
A small, western Manitoba community is in shock after the sudden death of a 16-year-old boy.
He was found Tuesday outside a duplex in Alonsa and taken to hospital where he later died, according to RCMP, who said Wednesday that foul play is not suspected.
However, police did not release any further information, other than to say the investigation is continuing with witness interviews and toxicology reports.
Residents from the nearby Ebb and Flow First Nation told CBC News the boy is from that reserve but was living in foster care in Alonsa.
A woman living near the home where the boy was found said she saw an ambulance pull up at about 8 a.m., along with four or five other emergency vehicles.
She watched RCMP members go back and forth from the home throughout the day.
The woman, who did not want her name published, said she didn't know the boy or the people living there.
Alonsa is located about 220 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg.
