Calgary police say a vehicle last seen being driven by a man wanted for questioning in a homicide investigation has been located in B.C., with a dead man inside.

The vehicle, a silver 2006 Toyota Corolla, was discovered Tuesday by Revelstoke RCMP — one day after Calgary police asked for the public's help to locate the roommate of a man found dead Sunday afternoon at a home on Oakmoor Drive S.W.

The man in the car, who police did not identify, was declared dead at the scene.

Roommate sought in homicide

On Sunday, the body of a man in his 20s was discovered by family members around 4:45 p.m.

Police said on Monday morning the death appeared suspicious, but update in the afternoon indicated new details led police to classify it as a homicide.

At the time, police said they were looking to speak to the victim's roommate — Mohammadali Darabi, 32. According to police, Darabi left the home Sunday afternoon and was seen driving a silver-coloured, 2006 Toyota Corolla.

Police say an autopsy was performed on Tuesday and the victim will be identified once next of kin are contacted.
