Suspect, 20, charged with second-degree murder in death of Sask. teenager

ONION LAKE, Sask. — A man has been charged with murder after the body of a 16-year-old boy was found in a home early Saturday in Onion Lake, a small community northwest of Saskatoon.

Cpl. Kelly West, a spokesman for Saskatchewan RCMP, said Sunday that police discovered the boy's body after they were called to assist ambulance personnel at the home.

"At the time they entered the residence in Onion Lake and located 16-year-old Keeley Winslow Crookedneck, who was determined to be deceased at the time," he said.

An investigation led police to believe that the boy had died as the result of foul play, he said.

Police would release few details about how the teen may have died.

RCMP took a suspect into custody and by Sunday afternoon, had laid charges in connection with Crookedneck's death.

Cassidy Stanley Lewis, 20, also of Onion Lake, is charged with second-degree murder.

He's expected to appear in court in Lloydminster, Sask., Monday.

West said an autopsy is scheduled to be performed on Crookedneck's body on Monday in Saskatoon.
