Police release images of suspect vehicle to get tips on deadly Edmonton home invasion
The Edmonton Police Service released surveillance images of a suspect vehicle on Monday as they seek tips from the public to help them make an arrest in connection with a deadly home invasion last month.
Shortly before 9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18, police officers were called to a home near 119 Avenue and 61 Street. They found an injured man and woman and the suspects were already gone.
Barbara Nelson, 59, died in hospital later that evening as a result of “blunt-force trauma incurred from an altercation during the home invasion,” police said. Her death is being treated as a homicide.
The 56-year-old man found at the home was treated by paramedics and taken to hospital with serious injuries.
