Police are asking for the public’s help in locating Fritz Chiefmoon and Kiara Leather of Calgary as they could have information that could help with the investigation.

“We are asking anyone with information regarding the murder of Christophe Herblin to come forward,” said Staff Sergeant Martin Schiavetta of the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit.

“This was a tragic, senseless event, and we continue to look for answers and seek justice for the Herblin family.”
