Missing visitor found deceased

The body discovered in a rural area north of Airdrie has been preliminarily identified as that of missing visitor Sheldon WOLF. An autopsy has been scheduled for Friday, Feb. 7, 2020, for formal identification and determination of cause and manner of death.

The death is considered suspicious and is currently being investigated by the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit, with assistance from the RCMP.

Sheldon WOLF, from Carrot River, Sask., was reported missing in the late afternoon of Monday, Feb. 3. He was last seen at approximately 7 p.m., on Sunday, Feb. 2, leaving the Sandman Hotel, located at 888 7 Avenue S.W. A missing persons news release was issued Tuesday morning in hopes of locating WOLF.

Evidence connected to WOLF’s disappearance was discovered in Elliston Park and a subsequent search of the park occurred on Tuesday, Feb. 4.

In the mid-afternoon hours of Tuesday, Feb. 4, a body was located in a rural area north of Airdrie. Officers were able to make a preliminary identification and notify next of kin that they believed they had found WOLF.

As this is a very active investigation, no further information is expected to be released until the autopsy can confirm cause and manner of death.

“We are determined to get to the bottom of what happened to Mr. Wolf. No visitor should ever have to come to our city and be concerned about their safety. At this time, we believe he willingly met with individuals who he had no previous relationship with prior to coming to Calgary,” says Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta, CPS Homicide Unit.
