For Immediate Release: 04-Sep-2020 @ 3:57 PM
MRU #: H20R022-1

One male is charged and another is wanted on warrants in connection to the murder of a 15-year-old male earlier this week.

Today, Sept. 4, 2020, the Edmonton Medical Examiner completed an autopsy on the 15-year-old male, who was found fatally injured in a northwest Edmonton parking lot on Sept. 2, 2020. The manner of death has been confirmed to be homicide, and the cause of death was sharp force injury.

On Sept. 2, 2020, Bradley Michael Edward Almas, 21, was arrested and has since been charged with second degree murder.

Today, Sept. 4, 2020, a warrant for second degree murder was issued for the arrest of Bradley Clifford Leland, 23 (also known as Bradley Durocher) in connection to the death. Leland is believed to be in the Edmonton area, and police are seeking public assistance in locating him. He is believed to be dangerous and should not be approached. Police do not believe the victim was known to the two accused.

  

Wanted for second degree murder: Bradley Clifford Leland AKA Bradley Durocher, 23
