A woman found dead in Calgary's northeast was being stalked by her ex-fiancé, according to the woman's aunt.
The body of 20-year-old Lacey Jones Mcknight was found in a car on Thursday around 10 p.m. MT at the busy intersection of Country Hills Boulevard and Coventry Boulevard N.E.
Nearby police had to rescue a man in his late 20s attempting to hang himself off a bridge.
While no charges have been laid, the man was taken into custody and is currently being treated in hospital.
Sources tell CBC News the suspect's name is Kristopher (Tray) Guenther.
Mcknight’s aunt Edie Lepage, who lives in New Brunswick, told CBC News her niece had been engaged to the man.
Lepage said that when they broke up he began stalking her. Mcknight was last seen Thursday when her mother dropped her off close to a mall to meet with friends.
It was just one of many times her mother had dropped her off, but it would be the last time she saw her, says Lepage.
According to Lepage, the pair had become very scared and Mcknight’s mother would drive her to and from work.
"They had called the cops on this guy for the last month,” she said. “He was texting her. He was following her and he was threatening."
On Thursday night, Mcknight's ex-fiancé showed up at the home where she had been living with her mother and said, "I just murdered your daughter."
Police confirm they are looking into a connected incident where a woman in her 40s was assaulted by a man who later tried to hang himself.
She did not require medical attention.
Police are describing the death as a result of a domestic dispute.
At this point, police are not sure what caused the death, but say it is suspicious.
An autopsy is scheduled for later today.
Police said they received a call Thursday saying a man had killed a woman and moved her body in a car.
Duty Insp. Paul Stacey said police are interviewing several witnesses and were investigating a home in the southeast community of Walden Friday morning.
"The homicide unit was called in and they are conducting the investigation right now," said Stacey, adding that police are not looking for any other suspects.
Police confirm they had "numerous interactions" with Guenther.
"[As] part of homicide investigation, we will take a look at all previous interactions with the individuals involved in this incident," Calgary police said in a statement. "We'll also take a look at those incidents to see if there are lessons to be learned."
