Lac La Biche RCMP still seeking man wanted in October homicide
Police have arrested the suspect's mother for accessory to murder
RCMP have arrested the mother of a man who is suspected in the October 2017 homicide of a Lac La Biche man.
The 53-year-old woman was arrested in Plamondon, Alta. on Thursday and has been charged with accessory to murder.
She is scheduled to appear in Lac La Biche provincial court on Monday, RCMP said.
"It is alleged she assisted her son, Lloyd Wesley Boudreau who is wanted for first degree murder," police said in a news release Saturday.
A Canada-wide warrant was issued for Boudreau on Nov. 7, 2017. He is wanted for first-degree murder, evading police and disposing of physical evidence from a crime.
On Oct. 28, 26-year-old Michael Mountain was found suffering from a gunshot wound.
"It is alleged that he was alerted to someone being at his front door, and when he opened it, he was shot just outside the residence," Cpl. Ron Bumbry said, noting that Mountain, his wife and three young children had moved into the residence a few weeks earlier.
He was taken to Lac La Biche hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said Boudreau is considered armed and dangerous, and people should not approach him.
He's described as a 5-foot-6, 188-pound Métis man, with black hair, brown eyes and tattoos on his neck and face.
Police said Boudreau might be with Mandi Boucher, who was reported missing on the same day as the murder. The 25-year-old is described as a 5-foot-1, 150-pound Métis woman, with brown hair and green eyes.
Bumbry said multiple officers are working on the case. They have followed up on several tips indicating that Boudreau and Boucher may have been seen in the Lac La Biche, St. Paul, Boyle, Camrose, Edmonton and Kamloops, B.C. areas.
"We believe several people may be assisting this individual in evading police, and ask the public's assistance for any information on his whereabouts," Bumbry said.
RCMP are requesting anyone with information on the case to contact them or Crime Stoppers.
"No tip is too small in regards to if you do spot this individual or have any information regarding this investigation," Bumbry said.
