CALGARY— Police say two people facing charges related to a quadruple homicide last summer knew all the victims. It’s believed that “ loose criminal networks ” were involved in the killings, he added.

Yu Chieh Liao, who also goes by Diana Liao, and Tewodros Mutugeta Kebede have each been charged with one count of first-degree murder in Afowerk’s death. 

The two also face three counts each of accessory after the fact to murder in the deaths of Fox, Pfeiffer and Ear.

A source told Postmedia that Kebede “has skirted around the edges of other gangs” and is known to be a part of a group of individuals allegedly involved in gun and drug trafficking in Scarborough, Ont.

Kebede was in custody in Toronto until very recently on unrelated charges, including drug trafficking, as well as threatening and intimidation of a Crown witness. He is scheduled to appear in a Toronto court on some of those charges Monday. 

At a Calgary police news conference Wednesday, Acting Insp. Paul Wozney confirmed that investigators are still looking for more suspects in the quadruple homicide.

  Police identify homicide victim buried under garage Human remains found buried in a pit about two metres below the concrete floor of a north Edmonton garage have been identified, Edmonton police said Tuesday. An autopsy identified the remains as those of Derek James Winnig, 42, who went missing in May.The case is being treated as a homicide, police said.The remains were discovered Sept. 29 near 118 Avenue and 96 Street.When Winnig disappeared, his family and friends feared the worst — that his drug and alcohol addiction had come back, his second cousin, Jim Winnig, said Tuesday.

Calgary police say charges are pending against a man and a woman in connection with a July quadruple homicide — two women and a man found dead in a burned-out car in Calgary and 3 bodies found in burned-out car in Sage Hill , 4th discovered days later near traffic circle west of city.

Police say Myers and Mells were in a relationship.

“The investigation is ongoing (and) we believe that there are additional people involved,” Wozney said. 

He also acknowledged that some investigative theories have shifted in the last three months.

“We are now of the belief, based on the corroboration of records, interviews and other police techniques, that these people are all known to one another,” Wozney said.

Police were careful not to repeat, as they had previously, that some of the victims may have simply “been in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

“All six of these people — the four victims and the two accused — were known to one another,” Wozney said. “The exact nature of those roles, I can’t comment on at this particular time.”

Wozney declined to confirm if the murders were gang-related Wednesday, but said there are “loose criminal networks” involved.

However, he did thank the guns and gangs unit of the Toronto Police Service for helping them to “push this investigation forward,” as well as the contributions of RCMP and police in Moose Jaw and Medicine Hat.

Quadruple Homicide of Washington Family Is 'Not a Random Act,' Police Say. Police soon determined that all four of the victims — including John Careaga — were victims of homicide . Citing an ongoing investigation, they have not released a cause of death.

Both Liao, 24, and Kebede, 25, appeared separately in provincial court Wednesday and had their cases adjourned to Nov. 2.

A cousin of victim Cody Pfeiffer, Dennis Hillareguy, said he was happy to hear police took suspects into custody, but he added it’s “kind of sad” that the first-degree murder charges are only in one of the four deaths.

“It sure would be nice to get some closure and get those people off the street,” he said.

Carla Fox, a cousin of Glynnis Fox and Ear, said she is hopeful that the developments announced Wednesday will lead to more charges soon.

“My cousins were like sisters to me and I miss them every day,” she said. “They deserve to rest in peace and the children and family deserve to live in peace.”

Fox and Ear left behind 16 children between them.

Calgary police continue to seek more information from the public. “If you’re scared, if you feel intimidated, we would be able to provide you with assistance,” said Wozney.

Police are also asking for help finding a specific location on the outskirts of Moose Jaw where they believe clothing connected to the murders may have been burned or destroyed. Wozney said investigators are particularly interested in rural areas near the airport and CFB Moose Jaw.

“We’re asking people in that particular area of Saskatchewan to take a look.”
