Edmonton police charge man following July homicide; 4 people of interest still at large

Edmonton police have charged 32-year-old Riad El-mir with first-degree murder following an assault that led to the death of a man in July.

In a news release Saturday, police said they were still looking for four other people of interest in the death of Tyler Lines, 38, and released additional pictures in hopes the public can help.

The assault of Lines happened on July 25, according to police. At 6 a.m., some passersby came across an injured man in the area of 119 Avenue and Wayne Gretzky Drive. EMS transported the man to hospital, although police were not contacted at that point.

Police were contacted by hospital staff on July 26. An investigation determined that Lines had been assaulted in the northeast Edmonton area where he was found.

On Wednesday, Aug. 5, Lines died of his injuries. His death was declared a homicide and the cause was blunt force head trauma.
