Early Friday morning, Maskwacis RCMP responded to a report of two men attacked with edged weapons. One man had non-life-threatening injuries and the other died of his injuries later that morning at Ponoka Hospital.

On Monday night, the chief medical examiner’s office in Calgary ruled the death a homicide.

Soosay is aboriginal, weighs 75 kg (166 pounds) and is 173 cm (five feet eight inches) tall. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Police warn that people should not approach Soosay. Instead call 911 or their local police service.
