Calgary police charge man with father’s murder after remains found


CALGARY — The discovery of human remains near a constructi­on site in southern Alberta have led to a man being charged in his father’s death. Police allege the two men were in a fight at a home in Calgary when the 53-year-old father was killed.

They say his body was dumped at the constructi­on site in Okotoks, just south of Calgary, where it was found on Monday. Investigat­ors are trying to track the man’s movements in the hours before his death and are asking anyone who may have seen his car overnight Sunday to contact police.

It is described as a 2012 white, four-door Ford Focus with Alberta licence plate L83265. Zaineddin Al Aalak, who is 21, is charged with second-degree murder and is to appear in Calgary provincial court on Thursday.
