As a result of the initial media release, investigators have now located and seized the vehicle that is believed to be connected to Michael Andrew ONISCHUK, 33, who remains at large.

ONISCHUK is believed to be connected to the murder of Jessie James HANAGHAN, 37, who was found deceased in his residence in Copperfield last week.
