Disappearance of Jasmine LOVETT and Aliyah SANDERSON - Update #4
Today, Monday, April 29, 2019, marks Day 6 of the investigation into the disappearance of Jasmine LOVETT and Aliyah SANDERSON. The search in the Bragg Creek/ Kananaskis area remains paused due to significant snow accumulation in the area.
Through the investigation police believe the suspect may have attempted to destroy evidence related to the homicide by means of burning, some time between Tuesday, April 16, and Saturday, April 20, in the area of Bragg Creek, Elbow Falls, Priddis and/or East Kananaskis. Anyone who may have seen signs of a suspicious fire in an unusual area, not in a designated fire pit, is asked to contact police.
Police continue to seek witnesses to the movements of a grey, Mercedes SUV in the same area. For further details, please see Update #3.
A forensic search of the home in Cranston has been completed and the residence has been released to the homeowner.
The search of the Bragg Creek area will resume once the snow accumulation has melted. Members of the public are advised not to attempt a search on their own during this time period as it could result in accidental destruction of evidence under the snow. However, police continue to seek public assistance with any information about the movement of the grey SUV, or fires in the area during the week of April 16.
