Identity of deceased person sought

We are seeking public assistance in identifying a man who was found deceased earlier this week in the northeast community of Horizon.

On Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at approximately 1 p.m., police were called for reports of a suspicious fire that occurred next to a commercial building located at 3805 29 Street N.E. Upon arrival, after the fire was extinguished, first responders located a deceased man.

All investigative leads to identify the man have been exhausted, including all traditional methods of identifying the deceased through the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. We are turning to the public for their help in hopefully generating new information that would help lead investigators to the appropriate next of kin.

It is believed that the victim had a light skin tone and was between 30 and 40 years old. He was dressed in a black baseball hat and a hooded sweater and was found to be in possession of a unique ring and a bracelet that police are hoping will lead to new information.

Anyone with information about the man’s identity is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
