A 31-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder after his father was found dead in his cottage in Red Lodge Estates near Innisfail.
Aaron Guilbault made his first court appearance in Red Deer provincial court Wednesday morning. He is accused of killing his father, Timothy Guilbault, 58, a former Red Deer City councillor from 1986 to 1995 and Calgary businessman earlier this week.
On Nov. 5th shortly after 12 p.m., a family member found the body of Timothy. Innisfail RCMP Detachment was contacted and a homicide investigation initiated with the support of the Red Deer Major Crime Unit, Forensic Identification Section and other support units.
Aaron was arrested in his father’s vehicle near Stettler a few hours after Timothy’s body was discovered, RCMP have said.
“The investigation is ongoing. There were no signs of a break in at the residence. We are continuing to search the property,” said Cpl. A.J. Mand, with the Innisfail RCMP detachment.
An autopsy was performed by the Medial Examiner’s office in Calgary on Nov. 6th however, the cause of death will not be released at this time.
