Investigation continues into 2017 arson that claimed life of baby boy

For Immediate Release:23-Feb-2018 @ 3:14 PM
MRU #:H17R036-3

EPS Homicide Section continues to actively investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a 5-month-old baby boy who died of smoke inhalation in a residential fire on Aug. 22, 2017.

The Crown has assessed the evidence and determined that it did not meet a reasonable likelihood of conviction, therefore a number of charges have been withdrawn.


Bronson Woycenko, 20, along with a 20-year-old female suspect were both initially charged in relation to this incident. While all charges were withdrawn against the female, Woycenko continues to face two counts of mischief and faces a new charge of causing damage to property.


No further information is being released at this time, as Homicide Detectives continue to investigate.

Homicide Detectives are encouraging anyone who might have information about this investigation to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.tipsubmit.com/start.htm.
