Innisfail RCMP have charged a 31-year-old man with murder following the death of his father.
Police say the body of 58-year-old Timothy Guilbault was found Monday in his residence at Red Lodge Estates, an acreage near Innisfail.
An autopsy, completed on Tuesday in Calgary, determined he was a victim of homicide — but police are not releasing the cause of death.
Police have charged 31-year-old Aaron Guilbault with second-degree murder.
He made his first court appearance in Red Deer on Wednesday.
Timothy Guilbault was a former Calgary businessman and served on Red Deer city council from 1986 to 1995.
Family in mourning
Edmund Guilbault says his brother was a gentle, caring and kind father.
In fact, he was the primary caregiver for his two the kids, adopting Aaron when he was just a baby.
Edmund says Timothy had confided that his son Aaron was having some problems, but the family didn't think they were very serious.
"The reality is that Timothy's son had some personal issues that resulted in him seeing a doctor and Timothy was working hard to help him," he said.
Edmund says it was Timothy's daughter Caroline who found her father's body.
The grade school teacher from Red Deer was supposed to be married this coming Saturday.
"She is, as the rest of the family, in mourning and is postponing the wedding at this point," said Edmund.
Edmund says to add to the grief his mother — the 87-year-old matriarch of the family of three boys and five girls — died on Monday as well.
