Friends and family of a young man who mysteriously died over the Easter weekend paid tribute to him in a vigil Tuesday night.
The body of Orphee Landa was found just south of the city on Friday, and that's where they gathered.
There are still many questions about what happened, and that's made the situation much more difficult for the people who shared their lives with the young man.
Police still don't know how he died, but released critical details in the case, hoping that new information might come to the surface.
Landa, who also went by D.J. Budidi, was part of a local hip-hop group.
It's said that he left his home around 2 a.m. Friday, but no one knows who he went with or where.
Six hours later, his body was found in a ditch near Okotoks.
The RCMP is now looking for the car they believe Landa rode away in.
They believe that the driver might know something about Landa's death.
It's a 2000 model green Chevy Impala with dark tinted windows and black rims.
Joao Miranda, a friend of Landa's, told CTV that they just want answers. "We are not pointing fingers at anyone. We don't know who did this to Orphee but we are looking for answers. I feel like somebody out there knows something, heard something or saw Orphee."
An autopsy of Orphee Landa is expected sometime later this week.
