Police continue to search for alleged murderer Marissa Shephard
The body of Baylee Wylie, 18, was discovered after an early-morning house fire in Moncton on Dec. 17
Police continue to search for Marissa Shephard, 20, of Moncton, wanted for the first-degree murder of BayleeWylie, who was killed on Dec. 17 in what police called a extremely violent murder.
A Canada–wide warrant for Shephard was issued late in December, but the woman continues to elude police.
RCMP Const. Jullie Rogers-Marsh says investigators have received and followed up on several tips since a video with pictures of Shephard was released in late January.
- Baylee Wylie's mother pleads for public's help to find fugitives
- RCMP uses social media video to help find Marissa Shephard
- Tyler Noel, accused of murder of Baylee Wylie, makes first court appearance
"We've had more than 400,000 views, which is the most viewed RCMP nationally has ever put out," said Rogers–Marsh.
"I think it certainly helped putting out new pictures of [Shephard], so people get a good understanding of what she looks like," she said.
Tyler Noel and Devin Morningstar are already in police custody on first–degree murder charges in connection with Wylie's death.
Morningstar is undergoing a psychiatric assessment. Noel is expected to return to court on Monday.
