In a news release issued Thursday, police named Irvin Badarm, 31, as a suspect in the case.

EPS said he was found to have allegedly committed a robbery at the Kingsway transit station about an hour before the homicide.

Badarm was arrested on May 18 and has since been charged with second-degree murder and robbery.

Meanwhile, an autopsy that concluded Tuesday found the homicide victim, Clinton Quintal, 34, died of multiple stab wounds.

The manner of death was confirmed to be homicide.

“Detectives believe there were other suspects involved in both the robbery and the murder, and are asking for anyone with information that may help to identify those individuals to come forward,” EPS said in the release.

“Investigators do not believe Badarm knew either the robbery or the homicide victim.”

Police are asking anyone with information about this homicide to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone.

Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online.
