Original release: Suspect arrested in homicide of Christophe HERBLIN

Earlier today, officers from our Homicide Unit arrested a man believed to be responsible for the death of Christophe HERBLIN, an innocent business owner in southwest Calgary.

On Saturday, March 14, 2020, the victim had responded to a break-and-enter alarm at his business, located in the 3800 block of Bow Trail S.W., around 3 a.m. Officers attended the scene and searched the business before clearing the location.

The victim then remained in the parking lot waiting for the business to be secured by a contractor until approximately 6 a.m., at which time it is believed at least three people returned to the scene and the fatal encounter occurred.

The male suspect arrested today cannot be named until he is formally charged. We expect to make additional arrests in this case and will provide information as it is available.

We are also asking for the public’s help to locate two individuals we believe to be witnesses in this homicide. We would like to speak to Fritz CHIEFMOON, 27, of Calgary, and Kiara LEATHER, 19, of Calgary, as they may have valuable information that can help move this investigation forward.

Our investigators would like to thank the media and members of the public for their support in this investigation.
