Missing person case now a suspected homicide

 

RCMP and the victim’s family are hoping a tip from the public might help them solve a suspected murder.

Lloyd Sword, 46, went missing in August and the RCMP’s investigation has determined that Sword met with foul play. The North District Major Crimes Unit has assumed conduct of the investigation.

Investigators have determined that at the time of his disappearance Sword was wearing a zip-up style black jacket, blue jeans, a dark grey T-shirt and running shoes.  With the current and upcoming hunting seasons, investigators expect that traffic in remote rural areas will increase.  Investigators are asking that persons who are using these areas be vigilant in looking for clothing possibly associated to Sword.  Time is of the essence as investigators believe that forensic evidence may exist in Sword’s clothing that will identify the person or persons responsible for Sword’s disappearance.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Prince George RCMP Detachment 250 561-3300 or Crimestoppers 1 800 222-8477.
