An investigation by Calgary police into the death of 42-year-old Duane Gordon Laybourne continues following the release of the Medical Examiner’s findings.

The cause of Laybourne’s death has not been released.

On February 3, police responded to a home in the 200 block of 28 Ave. N.E. following reports of a home break-in and possible gun shots fired.  Officers located a gun on the front lawn of the home and blood on the interior walls but no one was inside.

The CPS Homicide Unit believes a group of people had gathered in the home and an altercation occurred.  It is believed Laybourne sustained life-threatening injuries in the altercation and the severely injured man left the home.

The gathering in the Tuxedo home is believed to have been drug related.
