ORIGINAL STORY

On August 8, 2013 an 18 year-old woman was arguing with another woman when she was fatally stabbed in a residence in the Samson Townsite in Maskwacis.  The resulting police investigation uncovered evidence sufficient to arrest Charmaine Cherelli Louis-Crier in relation to the woman’s death and charge her with Second Degree Murder.

Louis-Crier had been released on a recognizance with one of the conditions being that she attends court for the preliminary hearing concerning her Second Degree Murder charge.  She failed to attend court and a warrant for her arrest has been issued.

RCMP Red Deer Major Crimes Unit is seeking the assistance of the public in locating Louis-Crier.  She is described as follows:

–              Female, First Nations

–              36 years of age

–              Height: 5’7” (170 cm)

–              Weight: 161 lbs. (73 kg)

–              Brown hair but is known to dye it blonde

–              Brown eyes

 

Her last known location was in the Londonderry Mall area (north Edmonton) however she has strong connections to Maskwacis.

If you see LOUIS-CRIER, call police or 911.  Do not approach her. Should you have any information on LOUIS-CRIER and you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by internet at www.tipsubmit.com.
