"Through the investigation, police believe the suspect may have attempted to destroy evidence related to the homicide by means of burning, some time between Tuesday, April 16, and Saturday, April 20, in the area of Bragg Creek, Elbow Falls, Priddis and/or East Kananaskis," reads a news release issued Monday morning.

Police have not released the name of the person they arrested last week, but they confirmed that the man who they released without charges on Friday remains their primary suspect.

Robert Leeming said he owns the townhouse in the southeast Calgary neighbourhood of Cranston that was being searched by police, and was a roommate with Lovett and her 22-month-old daughter.

He also said he and Lovett had been romantically involved "on and off."
