CASE №00253
NAME: Trevor McCallum
COUNTRY: Canada
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2022
CASE INFORMATION:

Trevor McCallum, 25, died while in RCMP custody in Meadow Lake, Canada.

McCallum was found unresponsive in RCMP cell on April 10, 2018. In July 2021, coroner’s inquest found he had died from an overdose of methamphetamine and antidepressants. Guards on duty said McCallum was talking loudly, dancing, singing, climbing on concrete benches and removing his clothes before losing consciousness. The guards told RCMP members about it, but they did not consider that McCallum needed medical attention. Paramedics, who arrived at the scene, pronounced him dead.

In July 2021, following the announcement of the results of the coroner’s inquest, the jury made a number of recommendations, including conducting medical assessments for people behaving in a manner consistent with drug intoxication for four hours. In October 2021, the RCMP did not support these recommendations.
