Charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder have been laid against one man and police are searching for two other people in connection with the discovery of a man's body near Brooks last week.
A man called police about 7:15 p.m. Sept. 1, saying he had been assaulted, but didn't know where he was, said RCMP Sgt. Patrick Webb.
Cops were able to trace the man's cellphone signal to an area near Old Hwy. 1 east of Brooks, but were unable to find him. Four days later, the body of Sharmarke Mohaned Warsame, 39, of Brooks was found in a grassy field.

A group of men allegedly asked Sharmarke Mohamed Warsame, 39, and another man to meet them in a remote area outside of Brooks on Sept. 1 under the pretext of buying drugs, but attacked them instead.
The second victim, Abdirahaman Kerow, 31, was able to escape and seek medical attention.
At some point, Warsame called 911 on a cellphone, but wasn't able to tell police where he was. His attackers found him and killed him.
RCMP major crimes investigators have laid charges against four more people in connection with the killing of a Brooks man.
Three of the four have been remanded in custody, but the fourth suspect remains at large.

I know this isn't too relevant to the case but which group was selling the drugs, the victims or the assailants? I am not naive enough to think drugs will go away, but I really tire of reading crime stories that are drug related. That being said, regardless of who was "allegedly" selling or buying, this is a tragic story and by all accounts, senseless. May all who loved Sharmarke Mohamed Warsame find peace during this time.

A small update on this case.
A young woman wanted in Alberta on a Canada-wide warrant for manslaughter has been arrested near Halifax.
The RCMP arrested the 18-year-old after a vehicle she was a passenger in rolled over Sunday morning.
A warrant for the woman was issued in Brooks, Alta., on Sept. 1.
She was a youth at the time and cannot be named.
BROOKS, Alta. - One of six people charged in the death of a southern Alberta man who police believe was lured to a remote location and assaulted has been sentenced to two years in jail.

From September 2010:
A southern Alberta man has been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of an African immigrant who court heard was lured into an ambush.
Carl Haywood, 44, admitted to the second-degree murder of Sharmarke Warsame in Brooks two years ago. He also pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in the beating of another man, Abdirahaman Kerow.
Five other people charged have already had their cases dealt with. Court heard in those cases that the motive for the attack was revenge for an alleged rape that has never been proven. In police video, Haywood describes how a tire iron was duct-taped to his hand to use as a weapon. A relaxed-looking Haywood explains how he and some of the co-accused waited for Warsame on the outskirts of Brooks.
