Canada-wide warrant issued for second-degree murder suspect

A Canada-wide warrant for second-degree murder has now been issued for Antoine Joel GROS VENTRE BOY, in the death of Paul MARCH last month.

Around 7 p.m., on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, the victim was walking past James Short Park, located at 115 4 Ave. S.W., when he heard an altercation between a woman and man inside the park. After hearing the woman tell the man to stop hitting her, the victim confronted the man.
