A man found dead Sunday at Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights had committed suicide, a casino spokeswoman said Monday.

Casino records indicate the man was not a regular gambler at the establishment and had spent $5 on a slot machine prior to his death. He was neither a tribal member nor a casino employee, the spokeswoman said.

The man’s body was found near the parking garage on Sunday afternoon.

The man may have had substance abuse issues, the spokeswoman said. The casino is cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation.
