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.
