POLICE ISSUE ARREST WARRANT IN ABRAHAM MURDER – Suspect at Large

Members of the Winnipeg Police Service Homicide Unit have identified a man believed responsible for a recent murder in River City.

On August 22, 2015, shortly before 5:00 am, emergency services were dispatched to the 100 block of Donwood Drive regarding the report of an injured man.

Upon arrival, a man suffering from apparent stab wounds was located and transported to hospital in critical condition.

The man subsequently died from his injuries.

The deceased was identified as Darryl Arthur Abraham (36) years of Winnipeg.

The investigation continued by members of the Homicide Unit who were able to identify a suspect in the killing.  Attempts to locate the man were unsuccessful and as a result, police obtained a Canada Wide Warrant (Manslaughter) for his arrest.  The man was identified as:

George Alan Guimond (35) WPS Handout
George Alan Guimond (35) WPS Handout

The investigation is continuing by members of the Homicide Unit. Anyone with information regarding this matter or the whereabouts of GUIMOND is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).

INSIDER COMMENTARY:

George Guimond has had extensive involvement with the WPS over the years and is a “close” associate of the Indian Posse Street Gang.

His involvement with police includes murder charges laid in the 2006 killing of Ryan Neufeld (20) of Winnipeg.

Guimond and crew managed to escape justice in the Neufeld murder when the case crumbled before it went to trial.

Canadian Justice would eventually catch up to Guimond’s brother Michael, a notorious card carrying member of the Indian Posse Street Gang.

Darryl Abraham was the 16th murder victim reported in Winnipeg in 2015.

He is the 6th victim to die from stab wounds this year.
