A quadruple homicide left four people dead in Calgary this past July.

Three were located in a burnt-out vehicle in Sage Hill on July 10, with the fourth found near Highway 22 and Highway 8 two days later on July 12.

After an extensive investigation, police have laid charges against two suspects: Yu Chieh Liao, 24, and Tewodros Mutugeta Kebede, 25, according to a release from the Calgary Police Service.

The two have been charged with first-degree murder of Hanock Afowerk, who was found on July 12 by Highway 22. They were also charged with three counts to accessory after the fact (murder) in the deaths of the other three victims, Glynnis Fox, Cody Pfeiffer, and Tiffany Ear.

Liao and Kebede’s next court date is Thursday, November 2.

“Although charges have been laid, the investigation is ongoing as police believe there are additional people involved,” the release read.

Police are asking that anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact the Calgary Police Service’s non-emergency line at 403-266-1234, anonymously through Crimestopper by calling 1-800-222-8477, or online at
