Texas murder suspect sought in Canada after crossing border into Manitoba, RCMP warn

Texas murder suspect sought in Canada after crossing border into Manitoba, RCMP warn A 27-year-old man accused of murder in Texas is the subject of a Canada-wide warrant after crossing the border into Manitoba last month, say RCMP.

RCMP are searching for a man who likely has burns on his hands after a business in northern Manitoba was set ablaze.

Emergency crews were called just after 3:30 a.m. on Thursday to the fire on Selkirk Avenue in the city of Thompson.

The business was engulfed in flames when crews arrived.

Police on Friday released photographs that show a man filling a small bottle with gasoline at a service station, going inside to pay for it, then walking over to the nearby business and starting the fire.

Fox Lake, Man., residents welcome RCMP presence amid search for homicide suspects.
Residents of a small, remote Manitoba First Nation say they are relieved to have RCMP officers door knocking in their community, which some people haven't left in days due to safety concerns in the massive search for two B.C. homicide suspects. "I'd rather have police walking around here than having murder suspects over there or over there, I don't know where they are," Fox Lake Cree Nation resident Dwight Beardy told CBC News Friday night. An RCMP tactical team dressed in camouflage went door to door on the First Nation, about a 45-minute drive from Gillam, Man. It's the new normal for the quiet community.
