Perplexing homicide of infant with no accused, no motive

Calgary police have now said that the death of an infant nearly two years ago was a homicide. But they have not charged anyone nor are they looking for anyone. It leaves just the mother and father of three-month old Cyrus Nel to consider. Police say they have no motive.  A police inspector said there’s no “plausible explanation” for the death. What can be said in this perplexing case is that recent medical information caused the police to conclude that the death was in fact murder. Cyrus was found in medical distress at his home in the 600 block of Taradale Drive N.E. on August 21, 2015 after someone contacted 911. He died in hospital a day later. It’s believed fatal injuries were inflicted in the home.


In a separate case, an Edmonton man and a woman have been charged in the death of a toddler whose body was found outside a church in Edmonton. Joey Crier, 26, and Tasha Mack, 25, each face one count of second-degree murder, criminal negligence causing death, failing to provide the necessities and assault. He is the father of the child but she is not the mother. Previous
