Canada wide warrant – Second degree murder

Richard Joseph Lacarte is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in connection with the March 2014 murder of Demetrios Karahalios in Edmonton, Alberta. Lacarte - who was known to Karahalios - has led a ‘drifter’ lifestyle and has been known to work as a roofer to support himself.

It is believed Lacarte may have changed his appearance and/or assumed a new identity to elude authorities.

If located, do not approach and call police immediately.
