Calgary police are seeking a second person of interest in connection with a homicide one year ago that left a Saskatchewan man visiting Calgary dead.

Sheldon Wolf, 47, from Carrot River, Sask., was reported missing in early February 2020. He had last been seen around 7 p.m. on Feb. 2, leaving the downtown Sandman Hotel at 7th Avenue and 8th Street S.W.

Police said Wolf was the victim of a homicide after meeting with several people that Sunday. His body was found in a rural area north of Airdrie two days later.

At the time, police said they also found evidence connected to Wolf’s disappearance at Elliston Park in southeast Calgary.

Fayiah (Victor) Briama, 23, of Calgary, was charged with first-degree murder in relation to the case. Briama is awaiting trial.

On Wednesday, police said they identified another person of interest who was being sought in connection with the homicide.

Investigators believe Wolf left the downtown Sandman Hotel and met willingly with several people with whom he had no previous relationship, including Briama.

Police allege that Sharmarke Ali Mohamed (alias Mohamod), 22, exited a white Infiniti QX4 and then entered a Toyota Scion with Wolf already inside minutes before the homicide.

Mohamed’s last known address was in Regina. Police say he also has ties to the Toronto area.

Detectives continue to search for others who are believed to have been with Wolf prior to and at the time of his death.

“We know several people were involved in Mr. Wolf’s homicide and we are intent on locating those individuals,” said Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta of the homicide unit.

“We won’t stop and will continue to pursue this until we’re satisfied everyone involved has been held responsible. Visitors to Calgary have the right to feel safe.”
