Tips sought in slaying
City homicide detectives are hoping the release of surveillance images will trigger some leads in an unsolved killing from last year.
Investigators have had little luck tracking down who was responsible for the death of Harsimran singh birdi, the 20-year-old Calgary man found dead in an alley near Harvest Hills Link n.e. on the morning of april 7, 2016.
reporters described a bloody scene, with the victim seen suffering significant injuries to his head. Police say birdi’s death was targeted.
before the discovery of birdi’s body, residents told Postmedia they’d heard a commotion in the alley and saw vehicles fleeing the scene at high speed.
on Tuesday, investigators released CCTv images of a man they believe has information on birdi’s death.
He’s described as an 135 lbs. man of middle eastern descent, about 5-foot-8 in height with dark brown hair. He’s connected to a 1995 to 2004 grey nissan Pathfinder with significant front-end damage.
Police are also looking for a second vehicle, believed to be a brown 2002 to 2004 Chevrolet venture minivan.
