The RCMP are now treating an incident this past weekend that left one man dead and another seriously injured as a homicide.

At a downtown apartment around 5:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, police found John Paul Wifladt, a 39-year-old diamond polisher and Colin Digness, a clerk at Videoland, unresponsive and “both suffering from serious injuries.”

Longtime friends, Wifladt and Digness were last seen leaving a Christmas party in N’Dilo around three or four in the morning, according to Wifladt’s brother, Tommy, whose cousin was at the party.

Wifladt died Sunday in Stanton Hospital and Digness was medevaced to Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton where he remains in critical condition, according to an RCMP release this afternoon.
