Family Have Identified Homicide Victim Found In Calgary Home
Police are asking the public to help them track down an 18-year-old Calgary man they want to speak with in connection with a weekend murder.
Christa Cachene’s family are asking anyone who knows anything about her death to come forward.
Police were called to the 0-100 block of Ranchlands Bay N.W. at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday, where they found Cachene’s body.
Police believe Cachene hosted a party Saturday night in her home.
Staff Sgt. Colin Chisholm said Cachene was found dead as a result of a “vicious beating”, which took place early Sunday morning after the party had ended.
A photo of 18-year-old Isaiah Riel Rider, of Calgary, has been released.
Police say they believe Rider was at the party and that he is wanted on a province-wide warrant for assault as well as a Canada-wide warrant for breaching a conditional sentencing order.
Rider is described as an Aboriginal male, approximately six-foot-two, 155 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on Rider’s whereabouts is asked to call the Calgary Police Service’s non-emergency line at 403.266.1234 or the Homicide Unit Tip line at 403.428.8877. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers.
Just days before her death, Cachene, 26, posted a video to her Facebook page reminding friends and family that time is valuable.
“So I realize that time is very, very valuable,” she said. “That’s a piece of your life you will never ever be able to get back, so be careful who you spend your time with.”
