The Saskatchewan government will investigate the decade-old death of an Aboriginal man said to be the victim of police brutality, CBC reports.

Neil Stonechild is one of several men who have been found frozen to death on the outskirts of Saskatoon. The Aboriginal community attributed them to police brutality, a charge that has been denied until a man survived an abandonment by police officers.

The two officers, from Saskatoon, were found guilty of unlawful confinement but have appealed the case.
