RCMP are offering reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in a 2006 murder.

Police are looking for 35-year-old Kevin Edward Brown, who is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant of arrest for one count of first-degree murder in the killing of Bradley Webber, 46, and one count of kidnapping of another unnamed individual.

Bradley Webber’s body was found in his fifth-wheel trailer in Eckville on Oct. 24, 2006.

Another man, Shayne Earl Gulka of Lacombe, was arrested and charged in March 2016 with first-degree murder and kidnapping.

Gulka has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to stand trial May 7 to 25 before a judge and jury.

RCMP allege that on Oct. 24, 2006 an unnamed man was kidnapped and forced to give up the whereabouts of an associate, who was living in a trailer on a rural property.

Police say Webber was shot several times.

The RCMP is offering a reward to anyone who provides information leading to the location and arrest of Brown. It is believed that Brown, originally from Calgary, is in either Alberta or B.C. as he has contacts in both provinces.

Brown should not be approached as he is considered dangerous. Instead, if he is seen, the public is advised to call police or 911 immediately.

Brown is described as Caucasian, 1.75 m (five-foot-nine) and weighing about 81 kg (180 pounds). He has blond hair, blue eyes, moles on his face and a scar on his forehead.

His tattoos include a Chinese symbol on left side of the neck and a tribal design on right upper arm. Police say his tattoos may have been altered or removed.

The RCMP requests that anyone with information about this case contact the RCMP Major Crimes Unit in Southern Alberta at 1-844-887-6287. Callers are advised that any information provided to the RCMP with respect to the location of Kevin Brown, will be treated with confidentiality.
