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.

“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.”
