Two NWT residents remain “persons of interest” after a homicide late last year in northern Alberta.
That’s according to RCMP Sgt. Mark Sloan of Alberta RCMP’s Major Crimes North Division.
He says no arrests have been made in the suspicious death of a man whose body was found near Red Earth Creek Dec. 4, not far from Slave Lake.
The victim’s name has not been released.
Sloan said he would not be releasing the names of the two persons of interest, who he says are currently living in Yellowknife.
Sloan came North to Yellowknife in December to interview the two people, a man and a woman.
They were not taken into custody, Sloan said.
He added that Mounties have no way of restricting their movements, meaning they could leave the country if they wanted to.
A CKLB listener told us she believes the woman is from Behchoko.
Sloan did not release any details surrounding the death..
An autopsy conducted on Dec. 6 found the manner of death to be homicide, although police did not reveal how the man died.
The photos of them and the vehicle they may have been driving are believed to have been taken Dec. 1 in High Level, Alberta.
CKLB is continuing to follow this story and will provide details once they become available.
