Ryan Holteen Dead, Police Investigate Prisoner Slaying At Edmonton Institution

EDMONTON - Police say an inmate at the maximum-security federal prison in Edmonton is the victim of a homicide.

Police spokeswoman Noreen Remtulla says he’s been identified as 32-year-old Ryan Holteen.

She says officers were called to the prison on Thursday night and an autopsy was conducted Friday.

She says the cause of death will not be released at this time.

Holteen, from Sylvan Lake, Alta., was convicted after a home invasion robbery last year in Grande Prairie, Alta.
