Manitoba RCMP have released more information in connection to the homicide of James Vernon Giesbrecht.

Mounties say the remains of Giesbrecht were located in the trunk of a burned-out Honda Accord. The vehicle was found on October 13, 2022, just south of the intersection of Road 108 West and Road 51 North in the rural municipality of Cornwallis.

A complete forensic examination has taken place on the vehicle, with the assistance of a Forensic Anthropologist from the Brandon University Department of Anthropology. Police located physical evidence that has since been sent to the Forensic Laboratory for forensic DNA testing.

Mounties have conducted additional searches, but investigators are still asking the public to provide any information they may have relating to the case. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Major Crime Services Tip Line at 1-431-489-8110.
