An arrest warrant has been issued for Tommy Vernon Paul, 30, of Campbell River in connection with a homicide in Alberta.

The Alberta RCMP Major Crimes North said they secured an arrest warrant Monday, May 4, noting Paul is wanted in connection with the homicide of Adrian Snider near Grand Prairie, Alta.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance locating Paul, who is described as First Nations, five feet and six inches tall, weighing approximately 130 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

“Paul has two previous convictions for assault and could be violent.  As such, he should not be approached,” the RCMP warned in a press release.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Paul is asked to immediately contact their local police service, the Grande Prairie RCMP at 780-830-5701 or Crime Stoppers at 780-222-8477 (TIPS).

Last Friday evening Patrick Decque, 29 was arrested at his residence, in Grande Prairie and Dominic Decque, 27, also of Grande Prairie, was arrested on Saturday at a shopping mall in Grande Prairie.

Both males have been charged with the murder of Snider and made their first court appearance in Grande Prairie Provincial Court on Monday, May 4, and are scheduled to appear in court again on May 25, 2015.

A third person was arrested on this matter, but has since been released without charges, the RCMP said.
