Man charged in death of Terrie Ann DAUPHINAIS

The Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit has charged a man in relation to the 2002 death of his ex-wife, following a lengthy investigation.

On Monday, April 29, 2002, the deceased body of 24-year-old Terrie Ann DAUPHINAIS was discovered in her home, located in the 100 block of Citadel Peak Circle N.W.

DAUPHINAIS’ three young children were found alive in the home upon police arrival.

Following an autopsy, DAUPHINAIS’ death was deemed a homicide.

Based on evidence gathered at the scene, investigators believed the person responsible was familiar with the home. DAUPHINAIS’ estranged husband was not living at the residence at the time and, although many investigative techniques were used, the case went cold in 2005.

In August 2017, new information came to light, which led to the case being reviewed. Additional investigative steps culminated in the arrest of Terrie Ann DAUPHINAIS’ estranged husband, on Monday, May 21, 2018.

Kenneth DAUPHINAIS, 43, has been charged with second-degree murder. He is next scheduled to appear in court on Friday, May 25, 2018.

The Calgary Police Service would like to thank the Winnipeg Police Service, RCMP, Edmonton Police Service, Saskatoon Police Service, as well as the media and public for their assistance in this investigation.
