Winnipeg police seek help solving homicide of John Goundry
Winnipeg police are seeking help from the public to helping them solve the homicide of John David Goundry.
The 51-year-old man was found dead inside his apartment suite, in the 400 block of Elgin Avenue, on April 1.
But police now say he likely died a month earlier, somewhere between March 2-7.
An autopsy has been done but the cause of death is not being released at this time, police said.
Goundry, who had limited mobility and is known to have had only a small group of friends who visited his suite.
Friends of Goundry said that was because he kept to himself.
Ted Turner volunteered with him at the University of Winnipeg’s student association.
Turner described Goundry as a kind, good man.
“John was really liked in our group. You know, we’ll really miss him,” said Turner. “It’s just so incredibly sad.”
Winnipeg police are hoping someone will recognize Goundry, especially because he often used a bike to get around.
“Mr. Goundry did have limited mobility,” said Const. Eric Hofley. “He was known to travel around the downtown area on his bicycle.”
The public is being asked to help identify anyone who may have been involved in his life or visited his suite between March 2-7.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the police homicide unit at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
