Members of the Alberta RCMP Major Crimes Unit and Grande Prairie RCMP Detachment have been working on the case steadily.

They received valuable assistance from the BC RCMP through the detachments in Tumbler Ridge, Dawson Creek and Fort St. John.

On June 25th, 2014, Grande Prairie RCMP Detachment responded to several complaints of gunshots at a location known locally as “Cutbank,” south of Grande Prairie.

Upon arrival at the scene, police discovered in a wooded area a dead man, identified as Devin Pisch. In addition, police located a second man who had non-life threatening injuries.

An autopsy conducted by the Edmonton Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that Mr. Pisch’s death was a homicide and that he had died of gunshot injuries.
