Cage Burnstick, 37, died Thursday at Edmonton Institution. Correctional authorities confirmed his death Friday but released no information about the circumstances. Burnstick’s loved ones have been told his death was a suicide, an explanation they find hard to accept. Burnstick was serving a 16-year sentence for a variety of offences, including four counts of robbery, uttering threats, assault, possession for the purposes of trafficking, and weapons possession. Candice Burnstick remembers Cage as a caring older brother. “He was really funny, kind, loved kids,” she said. “Me and my sister have given him lots of nieces and nephews, (and) he loved them. He was a good person.”
