Winnipeg homicide victim Jason Stinson was shot
Stinson's body was found near the Red River, at Lombard Avenue and Waterfront Drive, on June 12
Winnipeg police are asking for the public's help in solving the shooting death of Jason Stinson.
An autopsy has since determined Stinson, 49, was shot at some point during the day, police said.
Investigators have also determined he had been the victim of an assault a week earlier, on June 5, near the banks of the Red River in the East Kildonan neighbourhood — in the 900 block of Kildonan Drive, near Fraser's Grove Park.
He suffered significant injuries and required medical care, police said.
Police are urging anyone with information regarding the Kildonan Drive incident or about Stinson's activities on June 12, to call them at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
Stinson's friends have said he struggled with drug addiction. They said he had recently been evicted from his apartment in Beausejour, then moved to the city.
