Winnipeg police have identified a second suspect in an October 2020 homicide.
The body of Mohamed Mohiadin Ahmed, 29, was discovered last fall on the banks of the Red River near Churchill Drive and Hay Street.
At the time, police were asking the public for information about Ahmed’s whereabouts in the days leading up to his death.
In January, police were seeking a 28-year-old Winnipeg man, Jesse James Daher, who had been charged with second-degree murder in connection with Ahmed’s death.
Daher remains at large, and police are now looking for a second man, Evan Daniel Bill Brightnose-Baker, 21.
Brightnose-Baker is described as 5’5″ and 126 lbs, with a medium build and brown eyes. He’s believed to have black hair.
Both Daher and Brightnose-Baker are wanted on Canada-wide warrants for second-degree murder and are considered to be armed and dangerous.
Police said Jan. 19 that they believed the victim and suspect(s) were known to each other, and that Ahmed’s body hadn’t been in the river for long before it was discovered.
Anyone with information about the suspects at large is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
