Asked if the investigation is taking longer than normal, Horth replied, "Each file is unique, making it hard to say what would be considered typical.... Our priority in every incident is to make sure we complete a thorough review." The ministry's OHS division launched an investigation into the death shortly after it was reported last year.

"This review can take up to two years and varies based upon the complexities of each incident," said Horth.
