Winnipeg police have made a second arrest in connection with the death of a man whose body was found in the Red River last fall.
A dog walker found Mohamed Mohiadin Ahmed’s body on the banks of the Red River near Churchill Drive and Hay Street on Oct. 12, 2020.
The 29-year-old had been killed at a home in the Fort Garry neighbourhood days before his body was discovered, police say.
Evan Daniel Bill Brightnose-Baker, 21, of Winnipeg was arrested at a home in the William Whyte neighbourhood Tuesday morning.
Brightnose-Baker was one of two men wanted on Canada-wide warrants for second-degree murder in connection to Ahmed’s slaying.
Police announced the arrest of the second suspect, Jesse James Daher, 28, of Winnipeg, in February, following a standoff at a home on McGee Street.
Both Brightnose-Baker and Daher have been charged with second-degree murder.
Police have previously said 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.
