Body found under Edmonton garage Identified



I Heart Radio is reporting that "A former Kitimat resident has been identified as the man whose remains were found buried under a garage in northwest Edmonton last week. City police there say 42-year-old Derek James Winnig had been reported missing back in May."

"Acting on a tip, police discovered the body last Friday, buried in a pit about two metres below the concrete floor of a garage. Police are treating the case as a homicide, but have not released the cause of Winnig's death." This case is dodgy as f*ck.

    1. I should have proofread before I posted, it was meant to say boys :-/ I met them both, the last time I saw Derek in person. So very sad

    2. Yes. Heartbreaking. I am his oldest sons mother. Derek had such a huge heart. Nate is devastated. Lots of healing ahead but Derek is at peace now. We are taking some comfort in that. Ty for being his friend and I sure hope they find out who did this so his Mom and family can get some closure :(

    3. I am sorry for your loss. There is good and bad in everyone. Usually when things run afoul it's because they were trying to stand up for good.
