A lawyer for the family of a First Nations man shot dead in Saskatchewan says the S-U-V the man was riding in may have been compromised as evidence.
Chris Murphy represents the family of Colten Boushie, who was killed in August after the S-U-V he was riding in with four other people drove onto a farm in the rural municipality of Glenside, west of Saskatoon.
Murphy says the S-U-V was outside in a towing company parking lot on September 12th and then moved the next day to a salvage yard for auction.
Murphy says he was told by the R-C-M-P that blood spatter analysis had not been performed on the vehicle.

R-C-M-P did not respond to a request for comment, and Murphy says police have not told him if the S-U-V is back in their custody.
