Double Homicide Suspect Arrested in Winnipeg

A major breakthrough has been achieved in two separate homicide cases. The Winnipeg Police Service announced the arrest of a suspect, Maxim Dale Garneau, 27, in connection with both cases.

The first incident occurred on September 10, 2023, when police responded to reports of a shooting at an apartment building on the 200 block of College Avenue. The victim, Daniel Raymond Garvey-Rodriguez, 25, was found critically injured and later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

In a separate incident on March 18, 2024, police were called to a residence on the 1200 block of Selkirk Avenue, where they discovered the body of Edgar Allan Bear, 56, a member of the Peguis First Nation. Bear had also been shot.

The Homicide Unit had been tirelessly working on both investigations, leading to the identification of Garneau as a suspect in both homicides. Following consultation with the Manitoba Prosecution Service, two charges of Second Degree Murder were authorized against Garneau, and Warrants of Arrest were issued.

On April 11, 2024, officers located Garneau within the City of Winnipeg and arrested him. Upon arrest, Garneau was found in possession of a loaded rifle concealed in his backpack. The weapon and ammunition were seized, and Garneau was taken into custody without incident.

Garneau has been charged with two counts of Second Degree Murder, along with several other charges related to the possession and concealment of a weapon. He remains in custody as investigations continue.
