RCMP releases sketches of rural Sask. homicide suspects

The RCMP have released forensic sketches and descriptions of three suspects believed to have been involved in a break-in that ended with a man fatally shot and a woman wounded on Friday morning. Esterhazy and Broadview RCMP were called to a home near Round Lake, about 20 kilometres south of Stockholm, Saskatchewan, and Esterhazy, Saskatchewan, shortly before 4 a.m. CT.


The RCMP have released forensic sketches of three possible perpetrators in a home invasion which resulted in the death of a homeowner and injury of a female resident in a rural location in southeast Saskatchewan.

The first suspect is estimated to be in his 20s, approximately six feet two inches tall, and weighing 180 to 200 pounds with a slender build. He was wearing a black beanie hat and a dark-coloured work jacket with a light-coloured “sherpa” liner. He had a thin neck warmer covering his face, but may have a lower stomach tattoo and either a piercing, scar or missing hair on his left eyebrow.

The second suspect is believed to be older, around five feet eleven inches tall and 210 pounds. He was wearing a black balaclava, with a sparsely haired moustache, and a small pointed tattoo near the corner of his left eye. He also had another tattoo partially visible under the balaclava near the top of his left cheekbone.

The third suspect, who weighed approximately 240 pounds and was shorter than the other two men, had his face covered by a thin neck warmer and a beanie hat. Police reported that he was wearing a hoodie without a zipper, believed to be from the Red Dragon Apparel brand.

In a Sunday news release, the police stated that although the details of the homicide are still being investigated, three firearms and a substantial amount of ammunition were taken from the victim’s residence. Furthermore, the suspects are believed to have driven a vehicle to the scene, and set the homeowner’s car on fire before fleeing. The burnt car was later found abandoned on a nearby road.

There is currently no knowledge of the description or whereabouts of the vehicle, which is believed to have been driven east and west at the intersection of Highways #637 and #9 after the homicide. RCMP has also declared that there will be an increased presence in the area as the inquiry persists. Furthermore, those with any information on the suspects or who possess security systems with cameras in the region are asked to get in contact with the police.
