Police have released new photos of a Texas man accused of murder who may be in Manitoba after illegally crossing the border to escape U.S. law enforcement.

RCMP said Derek Whisenand, 27, crossed into Canada near Haskett, Man., during the week of June 24, and may have traveled to Winnipeg or eastern Canada.

As well as being wanted in Texas, Whisenand is also the subject of a Canadian arrest warrant.

Whisenand is 6’0″, 230 lbs, with brown eyes and brown hair. He was last seen with a black goatee, and may have a large dog, possibly a German shepherd/boxer or pit bull mix.

Police released a photo of Whisenand with a goatee last week.
