The youth, 15, was wanted for the untimely deaths of Danielle Ballantyne and Marvin Felix, as well as an incident on Main Street in Winnipeg. He was picked up by police on the weekend at Long Plain First Nation, with the assistance of the Manitoba First Nations Police Service.
In their search for the suspect, police made the rare move of getting a court order to temporarily release his name and photo when reaching out to the public for information — names of minors are otherwise not revealed.
