Calgary police have reopened the intersection of Memorial Drive and 36th St. E. following a Tuesday morning incident that left one man dead.
According to police officials, an adult male fell out of a moving vehicle shortly before 9 a.m. and was pronounced deceased on scene. Investigators have not yet said whether the man was injured before leaving the vehicle or whether he was pushed out or left on his own.
The vehicle had fled the area prior to the arrival of police. As of 11 a.m., investigators have not identified a suspect vehicle.
Members of the Calgary Police Service homicide unit responded to the scene.
“It’s so sad that there’s so much crime and, at the end of the day, that’s someone’s family member,” said Rhonda Hill, who lives near the intersection where the man was found.
Anyone with information regarding the suspicious death is asked to contact the CPS homicide tip line at 403-428-8877 or anonymous tips may be submitted to Crime Stoppers.
This is a developing story. It will be updated as details are confirmed.

A body under a tarp remains in the middle of the intersection. Memorial Drive & 36th are shut down in all directions. Creating traffic issues in the neighbouring parking lots. Avoid the area if you can. #yyc pic.twitter.com/VhyPK7bU9v— Teri Fikowski (@TeriFikowski) October 6, 2020
