A suspect in the murder of a 25-year-old man in Red Deer is still being sought by police.

RCMP have had no luck in finding Adam William Lee Bird, also know as “Gwap,” who is accused of killing Lloyd Robert Sarson, of no fixed address, on Jan. 1, 2013, in an alley in Eastview. Sarson died from gunshot wounds.

Bird, who is from Manitoba, is believed to be associated with an organized crime group with ties in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and British Columbia.

Police are now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

Bird was 17 years old at the time of the homicide, which would have normally shielded his name and image from publication because he was a minor. Following a court order under Section 110 of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, his name and photograph have been granted release for a second time for five days.

The order will expire at the end of the day on Tuesday.

Callers with information regarding this homicide can contact the RCMP Major Crimes Unit in Calgary at 403-519-7306 or 403-519-7307.

Any information provided to the RCMP about this suspect will be treated with confidentiality.
