Logan Jesse Raymond

RCMP are asking for the public’s help to locate a vehicle seen in the area where 17-year-old Logan Jesse Raymond was found deceased on Hwy. #2A on Aug. 12.

Police are describing the vehicle as a small dark grey or blue truck with a matching topper. RCMP added the vehicle had dark windows in the back and no windows on the sides of the topper.

RCMP said it is possibly an older model Ford Ranger with large and prominent red ‘Ford’ lettering on the back tailgate, which appeared indented into the tailgate.

This vehicle was seen in the area of Hwy. 2A near the Word of Life Church in Red Deer on Aug. 12 at around 12:30 a.m. in the southbound lane.

Police said it is not clear what, if any, involvement this vehicle had in this incident. A witness noted this vehicle at the particular time and location but RCMP investigators are hoping to locate it in order to speak with the driver and/or occupants, said police.

If any citizen has any information about this vehicle, he or she is asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at (403) 343-5500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Raymond’s body was discovered at about 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 12. when Red Deer rural RCMP and EMS responded to a report of a person lying on the side of Hwy. 2A. Upon arrival police discovered Raymond dead on the side of the highway. Since then RCMP, with the assistance of the Medical Examiner’s office, has been investigating the circumstances of the tragedy.

An autopsy concluded the 17-year-old was killed as a result of a severe injury to his head.

On Aug. 17 about 300 people packed Eventide Funeral Chapels & Crematorium to pay their final respects to Raymond.
