Wood Buf­falo RCMP have ar­rested 30-year-old Fort Mc­mur­ray man Jared Lee White in con­nec­tion with the mur­der of Ash­ley Chisholm on Feb. 11. White was lo­cated Thurs­day morn­ing and ar­rested with­out in­ci­dent. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing and po­lice will pro­vide an up­date when more in­for­ma­tion is avail­able.

Ac­cord­ing to Wood Buf­falo RCMP, of­fi­cers ar­rived at a home on Loutit Road at ap­prox­i­mately 8:31 p.m. Sun­day, Feb.11 af­ter they were alerted to a dis­tur­bance. Once they ar­rived, of­fi­cers found the body of a dead adult male in­side.

Po­lice have iden­ti­fied the vic­tim as Ash­ley Chisholm, 38, of Fort Mc­mur­ray. An au­topsy con­ducted at the Of­fice of the Chief Med­i­cal Ex­am­iner de­clared Chisholm’s death as a homicide af­ter com­plet­ing an au­topsy on Tues­day.

Cpl. Hal Turn­bull, spokesper­son for RCMP’S K Divi­sion, said Mon­day he did not have de­tails re­gard­ing the na­ture of the dis­tur­bance of­fi­cers were re­spond­ing to. He could not con­firm if any of the men in­volved lived in the home.

A na­tion­wide war­rant was is­sued for White’s ar­rest but has now ended.
