The Edmonton Police Service is investigating an assault that led to the death of a male on Aug. 5, 2020.

At approximately 6 a.m. on July 25, 2020, in the area of 119 Avenue and Wayne Gretzky Drive, passers-by came across an injured male who was then transported to hospital by EMS. At the time, no report was made to police.

On July 26, 2020, police were contacted by hospital staff, and a subsequent investigation determined that the male had been assaulted in the area where he was found. As the male’s condition continued to deteriorate, Homicide Section was involved in the investigation. On August 5, 2020, the male succumbed to his injuries.

On August 7, 2020, the Edmonton Medical Examiner completed an autopsy on the deceased, identified as Tyler Lines, 38. The manner of death has been determined to be homicide, and the cause of death was blunt force head trauma.

Police are looking for five persons of interest - one female and four males – pictured below.
