RCMP have arrested five people in connection with the homicide of Lane Tailfeathers last summer in southern Alberta.
On July 20, 2021, Crowsnest Pass RCMP — 165 kilometres southwest of Calgary — received a report from Alberta Fish and Wildlife about possible human remains in a rural area.
The Alberta RCMP major crimes and forensics teams identified the remains as Tailfeathers’, a 35-year-old man from Fort MacLeod, Alta., who had been reported missing by his family a month earlier.
Tailfeathers had last been seen in Fort MacLeod — a town nearly 155 kilometres southeast of Calgary and just over 80 kilometres northeast of Crowsnest Pass.
Police said in a news release Saturday that the five people that were arrested have not been charged yet.
RCMP are asking anyone with information regarding Tailfeathers’ death to contact them at 403-553-7200 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-847.
