“If you could only understand the feeling of relief as my sister heard across the phone that they had him. Now we just need to concentrate our efforts on finding marissa. Anyone who has even a tip no matter how small please call it in. All it takes is one person.”

Baylee was found in a burned out home in Moncton on Dec. 17. Police have called his murder “extremely violent.”

On Dec. 28, RCMP issued a Canada-wide arrest warrant for Noel as well as  20-year-old Marissa Shephard, who they are still searching for.
