Calgary, AB,

Missing person – Shane Eric James SMITH

A man who was reported missing earlier this week is now believed to be the victim of a homicide and investigators are asking for public assistance in the case.

The Calgary Police Service’s Homicide team is seeking public assistance to locate the body of a man who has been missing since last weekend.

Shane Eric James SMITH, 20, of Calgary, was reported missing by family members on Sunday, June 7, 2020. SMITH was last seen in the community of McKenzie Towne on Saturday, June 6, 2020.

Investigators believe that sometime between 11 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, 2020, and the morning of Tuesday, June 9, 2020, SMITH’s vehicle, a silver/gold 2002 Nissan Maxima, was driven and parked near the bridge over the Bow River on Deerfoot Trail S.E., at the southern city limits.

Investigators now believe that SMITH was killed sometime late Saturday night on June 6, 2020, at a residence in southeast Calgary.

Photos of SMITH’s vehicle are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

As this is an active investigation in its early stages, no additional information is available at this time.

Investigators are looking to speak with anyone who drove over the bridge between 11 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, and the morning of Tuesday, June 9, and have dash camera footage.

Anyone who may have seen or spoken with SMITH before he was last seen is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
