A man with Placentia roots was murdered late last month in Alberta.
Christopher O’Reilly, 36, was pronounced dead on Jan. 30, shortly after his arrival at a hospital in Leduc. He lived in the central Alberta town of Warburg, the community where police were called to earlier that evening.
According to family, O’Reilly was born in Placentia and moved to Alberta with his parents at a young age. His parents, Dennis and Dolorosa O’Reilly, are also from the Placentia area.
On Feb. 2, Thorsby RCMP announced Gerald Peter Krahn, 29, was wanted on one count of second-degree murder. He was arrested in North Edmonton two days later and is scheduled to make his first court appearance Feb. 8.
According to O’Reilly’s aunt Phyllis Smith, Christopher leaves behind a 12-year-old daughter. A celebration of his life was scheduled to take place last Monday in Warburg.
