Police have charged Edward Devin Boyce Gladue, a 19-year-old man from Whitefish Lake First Nation, with two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the murders of Dylan Laboucan and Cory Grey, both of whom were reported missing on July 23, 2016, and whose bodies were found several kilometres away in a rural area a few days later.
Yesterday (Aug. 12), police arrested Edward Devin Boyce Gladue in Peace River without incident after an intensive investigation lasting nearly two weeks, which involved the use of specialized units within the RCMP, as well as members from the High Prairie RCMP Detachment.
The RCMP is grateful for the assistance which it has received from the people who call the Whitefish Lake First Nation home. Their support and cooperation at this difficult and trying time is of vital importance to the work of the RCMP in the investigation of this traumatic crime.
Police do not believe that there are any other suspects involved in these murders, nor do they believe this was a random act.
Edward Gladue (was) scheduled to appear in provincial court in High Prairie on Monday, August 15, 2016. The RCMP will not be providing any additional details or comments on this case, given that charges have been laid and the matter is before the courts at this time.
The families of Dylan Laboucan and Cory Grey have asked for privacy as they grieve the loss of their loved ones.
