Woman seriously injured in RCMP cells

An external investigation has been ordered after a female in a secure RCMP jail cell was found alone with a serious injury early Thursday morning.

RCMP spokeswoman Const. Elenore Sturko said because an external investigation has been ordered, she couldn't answer questions about the nature of the injury, how the injury was detected or how long the woman had been in police cells prior to the injury.
