As they continue to investigate the double homicide that occurred near Sydenham Road in October 2021, Kingston Police are once again appealing to the public for assistance.
The murders occurred on Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021, when two victims were shot near Sydenham Road and Highway 401. One victim died immediately, and was identified on Monday, Oct. 18, 2021, as Carl-Alen Delphin, 21, who was also known as ‘Lito,’ an Ottawa-based rapper.
On Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021, Kingston Police confirmed that the incidents were now considered a double homicide, after the second victim passed away due to injuries sustained in the shooting. That victim was identified as Nico Soubliere, 29, also of Ottawa. The press conference held by Kingston Police the same day can be viewed here.
Given the area the incidents occurred in, Kingston Police made an appeal for public assistance on Friday, Oct. 22, 2021, looking to identify possible witnesses. The following Monday, October 25, 2021, police released stills from video footage they had since obtained of a burgundy SUV. Police believed those travelling in the burgundy SUV may have witnessed the shootings or relevant details to the investigation, having parked in the parking lot at Sydenham Road and Highway 401 – where the homicides occurred – while walking a dog.
Today, Wednesday, Jun. 15, 2022, Kingston Police issued another appeal for public assistance.
“Investigators have reason to believe that members of the public may be in possession of evidence of the homicides, perhaps that they may be unaware of,” police said in a press release.
“The Major Crime Unit is asking the public to review information including residential, commercial, and vehicle-mounted video footage that was collected on or around the date of the homicides that still may be available to them today, as they have reason to believe that such information exists and will assist with the investigation,” Kingston Police continued.
“Investigators are asking anyone who believes they may have information relating to the homicides to come forward.”
Police indicated that the Major Crime Unit has no further information to provide at this time, and that they would not be providing further comment on the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Constable Joel Fisher via email at [email protected], or at 613-549-4660 ext. 6338; or Sergeant Chad Parslow via email at [email protected], or at 613-549-4660 ext. 6245.
