UPDATE: The hunt for Tyrel Munroe has come to an end after the Regina police had located and arrested him in a Regina home, without incident, late on March 15.

Munroe appeared in court in Regina on Friday morning and will be remanded to Moose Jaw for early next week.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued by Moose Jaw police for Munroe for murder charges in a stabbing death of 21-year-old Bailey Anderson, in addition to breach of probation after he had fled prior to the police arriving at the murder scene.

Kristen Desjarlais, who was considered a person of interest, had turned herself in on the evening of March 14 and was arrested on her outstanding warrants. She appeared in court on March 15 on her previous charges, which were remanded until Monday, March 19. She was not charged with any offences related to this homicide.

On March 13 at roughly 1:20 a.m., Moose Jaw police and EMS arrived at a home in the 1200 block of 3rd Avenue NE after receiving reports of an injured man.

Upon arrival, they located 21-year-old Bailey Anderson who had reportedly been stabbed. He was transported to the hospital but later died.

On March 14, after further investigation, police confirmed this incident to be a homicide. This is the first homicide in Moose Jaw since 2009.

Anderson was reportedly stabbed by Tyrel Munroe, 19, also known as Tyrel Peequaqat, after an altercation occurred between the two at the home.

Anderson and Munroe apparently knew each other and were both living in Moose Jaw at the time of the incident.
