Canada-wide warrant issued in Edmonton strangulation death

A man wanted in connection with the strangling death of a woman in Edmonton, and believed to be in or heading for Greater Victoria, was arrested in Vancouver on Tuesday night.

On Tuesday evening, Vancouver police arrested Tessman at a downtown homeless shelter and he is now charged with second-degree murder.

On Friday, the Edmonton Medical Examiner determined that Valerie Maurice, 29, from Montreal, died from strangulation.

Investigators said Tessman is known to police, and lived in the suite where Maurice was found.

Police believe she went to the apartment on Tuesday, Aug. 29, around midnight.

"He has a criminal background from several years ago", EPS Staff Sgt. Bill Clark said Tuesday.

Kidnapped California Woman Found In Henderson
Authorities say a man who kidnapped his ex-girlfriend in California dropped her off at a Nevada casino before she was rescued. Paris is described as a white female adult, 55-years-old, approximately 5'06/150lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Investigators issued a Canada-wide warrant, believing Tessman may have fled to Victoria, B.C., over the weekend. He was eventually sentenced to 42 months in jail for sexual assault and was handed a 10-year firearms prohibition.

A friend named Crystal Jones told CBC Montreal that she had grown concerned about Maurice, who was "very secretive" and had started to distance herself.

"We are aware she held a high risk lifestyle by the focus today is not on our victim but on finding Mr. Tessman, that is what we want to focus on", Clark said.

Victoria police confirmed in a news release that officers are actively searching for Tessman, saying that he travelled to Victoria by bus over the long weekend.

If you have any information regarding his whereabouts, please call the Edmonton Police at 780-423-4567 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
