“We have collected a significant amount of evidence in this case and are working to piece things together,” Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta said in a statement.

“This comforter, which was found at the scene, is fairly unique and it is likely that there are people out there who know who it belonged to.”

Anyone with information about the incident or the owner of the comforter is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers.
