Military Police investigated over soldier suicide

Cpl. Langridge
The independent body that oversees Canada's military police announced Monday that it will conduct a public interest investigation into the suicide of an Edmonton-based Canadian Forces soldier in 2008.

The Military Police Complaints Commission made the decision following years of complaints by the parents of Cpl. Stuart Langridge, a veteran of Bosnia and Afghanistan, who had been in and out of psychiatric facilities for depression and substance abuse before he killed himself at Canadian Forces Base Edmonton in 2008.
