Seeking public assistance in the homicide of Shawn McCORMACK

We are looking for the public’s help to identify the owner of a unique comforter that was left at the scene of a July 2022 homicide.

On Sunday, July 3, 2022, at approximately 9:30 a.m., police were called for reports that a body was found in an alley behind the 1100 block of Frontenac Avenue S.W. Upon arrival, officers located a deceased man, later identified as Shawn Garry McCORMACK, 34, of Calgary. His death was determined to have been the result of a homicide.

Homicide detectives continue to investigate the events that led to McCORMACK’s death and are releasing an image of a multi-coloured comforter which was left at the scene. The comforter is believed to have significance to the investigation and has an image of a dream catcher and two white birds on it. A photo is available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

“We have collected a significant amount of evidence in this case and are working to piece things together,” says Staff Sergeant Martin Schiavetta of the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit. “This comforter, which was found at the scene, is fairly unique and it is likely that there are people out there who know who it belonged to.”

Anyone with information about the owner of the comforter or who may have seen it prior to McCORMACK’s death is asked to contact police.
