It was on the evening of Oct. 24th, 2006 that Bradley Webber was killed in his fifth wheel trailer in Eckville.

Now, after a grueling investigation which spans almost ten years, the RCMP’s Major Crimes Unit – South, with the assistance of the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit, has charged two men with first degree murder in relation to the death of Webber.

RCMP have arrested one man and a Canada-wide arrest warrant has been issued for another man accused in the homicide.

Yesterday, police arrested 44-year-old Shayne Earl Gulka of Lacombe. He has been charged with the first-degree murder of Webber as well as with the kidnapping of another individual.  He is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Red Deer on March 14th at 9:30 a.m.

Kevin Edward Brown, a 33-year-old man from Calgary, is wanted on one count of first-degree murder in relation to the death of Webber and one count kidnapping involving another person. A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for his arrest.  Brown is described as follows: Caucasian male, 33-years-old, 5 ft. 9, 179 lbs., with blonde hair, brown eyes. He has moles on face, scar on forehead, a Chinese symbol tattoo on left side of the neck and a tribal design on right upper arm.

The RCMP is asking for the assistance of the public in locating and apprehending Brown, however, he should not be approached if seen. Instead, the public is asked to call 911 immediately.
