Murder suspect re-arrested on new charges

  • Print

A 36-year-old man out on bail on a first-degree murder charge faces new charges after being arrested on Nov. 2.

RCMP arrested Corey Scott Tymchyshyn in Winnipeg Beach on Nov. 2 around 5:30 a.m. after receiving information from officers in Steinbach. At 6 a.m., RCMP executed a search warrant at a residence on Manitoba Avenue in Winnipeg. During the search, officers discovered a marijuana grow operation with about 80 plants.

Tymchyshyn has been charged with extortion, uttering threats, assault, breach of recognizance, possession and production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Tymchyshyn was previously charged with first-degree murder in the death of Chad Davis, and was free on bail.

Davis, 22, went missing in early February 2008 and police initially treated the case as a missing persons investigation. The search turned into a homicide investigation in July 2008 after his body was found wrapped in plastic and stuffed inside a barrel found floating along the Lee River near Lac du Bonnet.

Tymchyshyn and Kristopher Brincheski were both charged with first-degree murder

Tymchyshyn remains in police custody.
