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.
