The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 35 years old, with short brown hair, a full beard and a thin-looking face. He is about 5’10” with a medium build and was wearing a black hoody and blue jeans.

According to Leykauf’s post, Mayor Lois Jackson and DPD Chief Neil Dubord will be joined by “major crimes investigators and other police personnel” to provide a brief update on the investigation and the steps police have taken to date. Leykauf said the meeting will include lots of time for questions at the end.

The community meeting will take place this Wednesday (May 9) at 6:30 p.m. at the North Delta Public Safety Building, located at 11375 84th Ave. Doors will open at 6 p.m., and coffee and tea will be served.
