A day after publicly releasing information surrounding a new lead in the 2009 death of a Calgary woman, the Calgary Police Service arrested a former Swift Current resident in connection to the matter.
On Saturday, Calgary Police Service members arrested Christopher Dunlop following a three year investigation into the death of Calgarian Laura Furlan. Dunlop, 38, now a Calgary resident, was charged with manslaughter and indignity to a human body.
Furlan's dead has been deemed suspicious for three years, with the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit having now determined she was the victim of a homicide.
Calgary police had issued a press release early on Friday with new details uncovered during their investigation, with the release including photos of a dark orange Dodge Ram 1500 and hopes that the vehicle's driver may have information about the death.
Dunlop was taken into custody without incident the following day.
The Calgary police press release notes Funlan was leading a high-risk lifestyle and met the accused several hours prior to her disappearance on Aug. 24, 2009. It is alleged that some point during the evening Furlan was killed and her body dumped in Fish Creek Park in southern Calgary. Her body was discovered on Sept. 7, 2009.
