Edmonton Sun: July 28, 2016
Two teenagers whose bodies were discovered in the High Prairie area earlier this week both died as a result of gunshot wounds, RCMP said Thursday morning.
Dylan Laboucan, 17, and Cory Grey, 19, were declared to be the victims of homicide following autopsies completed Wednesday.
The teens went missing from the home where they lived with Laboucan’s parents on the Whitefish River First Nation on Saturday night. Laboucan’s body was discovered by a community search party on Monday evening. Grey’s body was found by police Tuesday afternoon.
According to the RCMP statement, investigators are now focussed on arresting the person responsible. Police said a “significant amount” of evidence has been collected, and that the crime is not believed to be a random act.
Anyone with information connected to this crime is asked to contact police.
Whitefish River is part of the Whitefish Lake First Nation, also known as Atikameg. Whitefish Lake First Nation is in the High Prairie RCMP’s detachment area. High Prairie is about 370 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.
