THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO January 15, 2020 - 12:15 (LSN)  Police Media Release States: The Thunder Bay Police Service is charging two accused in a January homicide with First-Degree Murder.

Thunder Bay Police Service officers with the Uniform Patrol Branch were originally responded to a reported break and enter in the 300 block of Syndicate Avenue North just before 3 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020.

Officers arrived in the area and located footprints in the freshly fallen snow, which were suspected to be linked to the original call for service. Police followed the footprints and located two male suspects.

As a result of the ongoing investigation, and the victim’s passing, investigators have laid additional charges to both accused.

On Wednesday, Jan. 15 ECHUM appeared in court on charges of:
• First-Degree Murder
