Manhunt continues for Yukon murder suspect Michael Macpherson
Police find 1 of 2 vehicles associated with suspect
Whitehorse RCMP have located a vehicle belonging to Michael Macpherson, who is wanted for second-degree murder in connection with the stabbing death of Tanner Sinclair on Tuesday.
RCMP say they located Macpherson's 2002 brown/gold Cadillac Escalade thanks to help from the public.
They are still looking for another vehicle associated with Macpherson — an older red Toyota Corolla with several dents. Police had previously described this vehicle as a red Honda Civic. RCMP say they would also like to speak with anyone who may have sold a red Toyota Corolla within the last month.
Macpherson, 32, is described as a Caucasian male, 5'10", 220 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Police say he has also used the names Michael Pound and Michael Proud in the past.
Police say Macpherson has connections in British Columbia and Saskatchewan and could be headed out of town.
Tanner Sinclair, 27, died early Tuesday following an incident on Lazulite Drive in the Copper Ridge neighbourhood.
A neighbour noticed Sinclair lying injured on the ground outside a house just after midnight on Tuesday. RCMP and paramedics were called at about 12:20 a.m.
Police say Sinclair was found still conscious and breathing and was taken to Whitehorse General Hospital. He later died in hospital after being admitted for treatment.
Police issued a warrant for Macpherson's arrest Tuesday evening.
RCMP say Macpherson is considered armed and dangerous. They ask anyone who spots him or his vehicle not to approach, but to call 911 or the Whitehorse RCMP complaint line at 667-5555.
