Two suspects wanted for the murder of a British Columbian man near Toronto last month have fled the country.
Hamilton Police confirmed on social media that Oliver Karafa, 28, and Yun (Lucy) Lu Li, 25, boarded a plane to Eastern Europe approximately 24 hours after the murder of Tyler Pratt.
The pair are wanted for First Degree Murder in Pratt’s death, as well as for the attempted murder of a woman.
Investigators believe Karafa and Li are aware that they are wanted, and are “actively evading” the law.
UPDATE: Arvin Avenue Murder and Attempted Murder
