A tip from a member of the public has led RCMP officers to the car belonging to murder victim Garland Curtis in a Central Alberta town.

Now officers are seeking the public’s assistance in determining the vehicle’s whereabouts in the days between Curtis’ death and the discovery of his car.

Curtis’ 1994 Saturn was found abandoned in the town of Olds on January 21.  The Saturn sedan has a distinctive rear quarter panel on the driver’s side which is a different shade of purple than the rest of the car.

The lifeless body of 40-year-old Garland Curtis was discovered in his Airdrie home on January 12 by RCMP officers conducting a check on welfare. An autopsy determined Curtis had been murdered.  

Anyone who has surveillance video of the roadways near Olds or anyone who may have seen Curtis’ Saturn between January 9 and 15 is asked to contact Olds RCMP (403)556-3323, Airdrie RCMP (403)945-7267 or Crime Stoppers.
