Reno Lee murder



Police aren't saying exactly how or when Reno Lee was murdered but they are saying they found Lee's body north of Balcarres, Saskatchewan which is north west of Regina and the investigation began on April 23. On May 15th CJME reported that the Regina Police Service announced John Earl Desjarlais, 30, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Reno Lee.

CJME is also reporting that Four people are charged with first-degree murder: 31-year-old Daniel Theodore, 21-year-old Andrew Michael Bellegarde, 30-year-old Bronson Gordon, and Desjarlais. Desjarlais was already facing charges of kidnapping and aggravated assault in connection to Lee's death. Joni Victoria Reed, 29, has been charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder. CTV is reporting that 30-year-old Bronson Chad Gordon of Regina was arrested in Edmonton. CTV posted the above picture of Bronson who is one of the four men charged in Reno Lee's murder.

  1. A little context would be helpful because there is no indication, to many of us, if these people were "known to police", had criminal records, were members of gangs, etc.

    1. A blog reader mentioned it and implied it was rival drug dealers. The police aren't saying a word so we have to wait for the details to come out in court. It will be definitely worth watching and following up on.

  2. Regaurdless if he was "known to police" or a gang member, or whatever else, he was human. He was a father, and a son, and a brother. He did not deserve to doe like that. It is sad no matter what. His son (whom he loved very much) will grow up without his father. He touched many lives. Including mine...i am not a gang member, or known to police. Reno Lee was my friend. I will miss him dearly. :(

  6. I personally know all of these men including the victim - poor Reno, ya he dibbs you on some cash but it was not acceptable to do that to him-a thousand bucks can be replaced. Dan one of the guys accused is someone that should be not really charged because his mental state. Bronson I'm sure was drugged and convinced to do it and Andrew was drunk at least and was promised some kind of reward. That is if they even did it in the first place. All three are still in Regina Correctional awaiting trial and nothing is published due to publication ban (court ordered). All three men are charged on hear say and it has to do with people that don't like them. So i guess evidence will tell if these 3 really are the village goats or if they are guilty. Personally I don't think they are guilty.

  7. Update: According to previously reported information, it’s believed Lee died April 18, though his body was not found until April 30 near Balcarres
    Gordon, Theodore and Bellegarde are among a group of six facing charges in connection with Lee’s death, although the others aren’t slated to stand trial with them. John Earl Desjarlais, also charged with first-degree murder, has a preliminary hearing scheduled for the summer. Two others, Dennis Alfred Bird and Joni Victoria Reed, are accused of being an accessory after the fact and are also still before the court.

    1. What are the accused's affiliations? If drugs are involved in Edmonton someone was working for the red and white.

  8. What are the accused's affiliations? They all know each other through 'street hanging out' In Regina everyone knows everyone if you 'hang out' . It is like a small town in that sense. Even smaller now that so many are in jail in the last year.
    If drugs are involved? Drugs lol is it not always over that. Reno dibbs and someone got mad. The drug at the time rocking the streets was Meth (homemade) like grandma's cookies. I was not at the seen so what the hell do I know.
    Edmonton someone was working for the red and white? If I had to guess I would say it was all over the media he was wanted and news flots on texting real quick here so he was easy to find for the coppers. Regina is full of Santa's little helpers. They all want to lessen their own charges so they tell on the neighbor. It has become worse in the last 2 years. They make a Tips Call just so they can get rid of the one taking their drug sells. Another big trend here is blame the girl friend cause she will do time for him bit. I guess instead of a Tim Bit its a Him Bit.
    I just know none of them would survive in a real city. Regina is titled the crime city of Canada; It is because no one knows what they are doing and get caught a lot. It is crime that is violent and they favor house invasions. The womans jail is full of him bits doing time for home invasions. One more thing Regina is good for is liars. Do they love to lie to the cops to their mothers and to each other. Scenario example....You owe $60 for drug bill. You pay said $60. Next day dealer says you did not pay the $60 to his guys and boom you have a broken leg and still owe $60. Thats Regina for ya!
