A 31-year-old man wanted in Regina’s first murder of 2017 is being sought by city police and authorities in Winnipeg.

A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for Johnathon Edward Kakewash, from Winnipeg, for the death of Daniel DiPaolo, 51.

DiPaolo was found dead in his home on the 700 block of Garnet Street on April 29. 

Another 51-year-old man, Edward Joseph Genaille, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on May 8. At the time, police said they believed more people were involved. 

Regina police said an investigation with homicide detectives in Winnipeg helped identify three more suspects.

Two of them, who were in Winnipeg police custody on unrelated matters, were arrested Wednesday.

Christopher Matthew Brass, 34, and Malcolm Mitchell, 25, both from Winnipeg, were charged with first-degree murder.

They are scheduled to appear in Regina court by video Friday afternoon.

Anyone with information on Kakewash’s whereabouts is asked to contact Regina or Winnipeg police, RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
