A man identified as a person of interest in a Surrey murder last month has been arrested in Calgary.

Donald Lyle Salahub, 44, was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for an alleged parole violation and was sought in connection with information he might have about the murder of Abbotsford’s Michael Amy.

Amy, 34, was found  unresponsive in an SUV in the 9500-block of 139 Street on Friday, Feb. 27.

The cause of death has not been made public.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said Monday Salahub, previously identified as a person of interest in the killing, was arrested on the Canada-wide warrant without incident in Calgary on Friday, March 20.

IHIT investigators were speaking with Salahub on Monday, attempting to determine if he had key information regarding the Amy murder.

“As I said initially, we had reason to believe he may have information related to the death of Michael Amy and that’s what they’re working on finding out right now,” IHIT spokesperson Sgt. Stephanie Ashton told The Leader Monday.
