Homicide investigators arrested and charged Christopher Lamarche, 25, with second degree murder in the 2017 suspicious death of six-month-old Jarock Humeniuk.
Northeast Division patrol members had originally responded to a residential address near 142 Avenue and 77 Street, at approximately 7 a.m., May 28, 2017, at the request of EMS. Upon arrival, officers learned that a six-month-old male child was deceased at that address.
The Edmonton Medical Examiner has since determined the cause of death to be blunt force trauma, and the manner of death to be homicide.
Homicide detectives arrested Lamarche in Vancouver last Friday, July 5, 2019. Lamarche is expected to make his first appearance before a judge later this week, following his return to Edmonton.
