Authorities say that they are now counting a previously-announced homicide in the 2021 count.
On December 30, officers with the Winnipeg Police Service located a 31-year-old, Leroy Jamie Daniel Flett, severely injured in a 1600 block of Burrows Avenue home. Flett was transported to the hospital where he later died of his injuries on January 1.
On Saturday, investigators issued an arrest warrant for 26-year-old Evan Jaye Littlejohn. Police say they have arrested him and are charging the suspect with Manslaughter.
Authorities are now considering the death as a 2021 homicide, not counting it in the previous year's total as the victim died in 2021.
