The 17-year-old’s body was found in a remote area just north of Morley two days after police were called to a home in Monterey Park for a check on welfare. At the time of the call, a neighbour claimed to have heard what sounded like a gunshot, but nothing unusual was found.

According to Alberta Justice, Ajil was in court on Monday, where he was sentenced to eight months behind bars.
