An inquest is to be held into the death of a woman who fell down a laundry chute at a Regina hotel. An autopsy report released earlier this month said Nadine Machiskinic's (mah-CHIHS'-kih-nihk) death was accidental and noted that tests showed she had drugs in her system. But Saskatchewan Justice Minister Gord Wyant says the report has raised more questions that need to be answered for the public to have faith in the system. (Machiskinic's family says it received an alternate autopsy report early in the investigation that concluded her death should be listed as undetermined. The family says the earlier report stated that Machiskinic would have been incapable of climbing into the laundry chute on her own.)
