The search for Christopher Mackenzie Campbell ended in Downtown Regina yesterday at 4:35 pm.

Regina Police Service announced the arrest via their Twitter account.

So far, the WPS and RPS have avoided releasing any information regarding what kind of charges Campbell is facing.  In fact, the WPS have not yet confirmed the case is being treated as a Homicide.  In an somewhat unusual approach, Campbell is being called a “suspect” in what the WPS are calling a “suspicious death.”

A tweet to the RPS twitter account asking for clarification regarding Campbell’s charges went unanswered.

The WPS Public Information Office is expected to add some clarity to the charges later today.

If the case is determined to be a Homicide it will be the sixth murder recorded in Winnipeg in 2013.
