The death of a man whose body was found north of Edmonton has been confirmed a homicide and police have released his identity.

The Edmonton chief medical examiner’s autopsy determined Ahmed Farah’s death was a homicide but the cause of death isn’t being released, Morinville RCMP said.

Investigators said Farah was released from the Edmonton Remand Centre at 12:50 a.m. Nov. 25.

Less than two hours later, at 2:40 a.m., the 25-year-old was found dead by a St. Albert RCMP officer on the side of Range Road 251 in rural Sturgeon County, which is less than two kilometres from the Remand Centre.
