Body found in Calgary mall parking lot after people seen fleeing house party
Police took multiple people into custody for questioning and are looking for 2 men wanted on warrants
Police are trying to locate two men who are believed to have information related to the discovery of a man's body in the Westbrook Mall parking lot in southwest Calgary late Tuesday night.
Police were called to the Rosscarrock area about a disturbance at a house in the 1100 block of 37th Street southwest at 10:40 p.m.
When officers arrived, numerous people were seen fleeing what appeared to be a house party across the street from the mall where the deceased man in his 20s was found, police said in a release.
Multiple people were taken into custody for questioning. The homicide unit is investigating.
Detectives are looking for Christian Whitebear, 25, and Matthew Crane-Watchmaker, 19, believing they can provide more information about the incident. Both men are wanted on outstanding, unrelated warrants.
Police blocked off 37th Street from 10th Avenue to 13th Avenue S.W. in both directions throughout the night. The road has since been reopened.
No charges have been laid yet and more information will be released when it is available, police say.
Police did not say how the man died. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
