Valdo Pauyo, 27, originally from Montreal, has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of a 42-year-old man from Sipekne’katik First Nation.

The victim was found dead in a home on Glooscap Drive on the afternoon of July 12.

“Police believe that Pauyo has made attempts to change his appearance,” it said. “Pauyo is also known to use the alias ‘C.J.'”

Anyone with information about Pauyo is asked to contact the Nova Scotia RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Second arrest

The RCMP previously arrested one other person in relation to the homicide.

On Aug. 27, police arrested a 37-year-old woman from Millbrook in Quebec. She was returned to Nova Scotia and was charged with accessory after the fact to murder.

The charges against her were dropped Wednesday morning after the Crown determined there was no realistic prospect of conviction.
