"Investigators would like the three men, who have been identified as persons of interest, to come forward and be interviewed," said Staff Sgt. Rob Drummond of the Ottawa police’s major crimes unit.
"If you recognize yourself or someone you know from these pictures, please contact Major Crime."
Ottawa police also released a photo of Jemmie from the night he was killed, hoping to jog people’s memory. He was seen wearing a dark shirt and later added a white piece of clothing on his shoulders, according to the news release.
Jemmie, 21, was stabbed in the stomach near the intersection of Elgin and Frank streets around 2:35 a.m. He later died of his injuries in hospital.
Police sources told CBC News that Jemmie was intoxicated at The Living Room bar on Elgin Street and was involved in a fight inside.
He was kicked out of the bar and became involved in a fight on Elgin Street soon after, sources said.
Ottawa police released a photo of a person of interest earlier this week. They were later able to speak to the person, and he is not considered a suspect.
Jemmie is Ottawa’s fourth homicide victim of 2014. No arrests have been made or suspects identified in connection with his death.
Ottawa police ask anyone who was around Elgin and Frank streets between 2:15 and 2:45 a.m. on Aug. 23, or anyone with information on the stabbing, to contact them at 613-236-1222 ext. 5493 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.
