The family of an Edmonton man slain outside a 118 Avenue convenience store continues to look for answers months after his death.“We figured they would be calling us and letting us know what’s going on and it seems like we’re the ones that have to call and when we do call it seems like we get a little bit of an attitude,” she said.Diamond Helle said her family found a hat and a shoe they believe belonged to the victim at the scene the first time they visited and submitted to police as evidence.Edmonton police confirmed they are waiting for forensic tests to be returned. EPS spokeswoman Carolin Maran said homicides vary on a case-by-case basis.“What they try to say is this type of thing could take years, sometimes the murderer doesn’t get captured for years,” said Diamond Helle. “But they say that’s not going to be this case. Is that supposed to make me feel better? This is only going to take months she says.”Now she is pleading for the public’s help.“I know getting someone put in jail isn’t gonna bring my brother back and I’m aware of that. But, it might bring a little bit of peace to my mom, it might make us feel better knowing this person isn’t out doing it to other people,” said Diamond Helle.“If anybody knows the person who is responsible, please tell the police, message me, do it anonymously, you don’t have to put your name out there.”
Edmonton Police are investigating a suspicious death of a 26 year-old Catlin Helle outside a convenience store near 118 Ave. and 101 Street.
