Winnipeg police are looking for a murder suspect after a man was found dead in a river last year.

On October 12, 2020, police responded to a report of a body that had been discovered in the Red River near Churchill Drive and Hay Street.

A deceased male was later identified as Mohamed Ahmed, 29. His death was determined to be a homicide.

Members of the Homicide Unit continued to investigate his murder.

A Canada-wide arrest warrant has been issued for Jesse James Daher, 28, of Winnipeg, for second-degree murder.

Daher is described as a white male, 6’3” in height, approximately 155 lbs, with a thin build. He has green eyes and is believed to have a shaved head or possibly short brown hair.

Police say Daher is considered to be armed and dangerous and the public is cautioned not to approach him.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call 911.
