A 19-year-old man is facing two counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of two teens in Northern Alberta.
High Prairie RCMP released Thursday that they arrested a lone suspect in relation to the investigation into the murders of Dylan Laboucan, 17, and his 19-year-old girlfriend Corey Grey.
The two teens were reported missing from their home July 23, 2016 and were found a few days later. Laboucan’s body was recovered on the Whitefish Lake First Nation where the two lived, Grey’s body was found outside High Prairie.
Police haven’t released details about their deaths, only confirming they were targeted and were the victims of homicide.
Edward Devin Boyce Gladue of the Whitefish Lake First Nation is scheduled to be in court in High Prairie on Monday.
In a release, RCMP say the families have asked for privacy as they grieve. Family and friends say Laboucan and Grey were highly regarded members of their community. The two had been accepted to Northern Lights College in Slave Lake. They had planned to move into an apartment there in the fall. (kb)
