Edmonton police say the man found dead in a fire earlier this week was shot to death.
His body was found in a burned-out rental suite near 106 Avenue and 122 Street on Tuesday. An autopsy Wednesday shows he died from a gunshot wound.
Police still don’t know his identity. As far as they can tell, he was a white man, five-foot-eight, with a medium to large build. He was wearing True Religion jeans, a black leather jacket, Nike runners, a watch, and a distinct ring.
Anyone who has information about this death, or the identification of the male, is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online. (kb/bd)
