City police say a search last week of the area where the remains of a Calgary man were found recovered new evidence. An additional search was conducted there Thursday as investigators again appealed for public assistance.

The first is of the brown pickup truck prior to the Boisseaus death and the second is from CCTV footage of the rear parking lot of the apartment building in Bridgeland, where the truck was parked for a period of time.

Jeremy Boisseau’s remains were found in October 2018 in a wooded area north of Waiparous, off Forestry Trunk Road.

While the driver is not believed to be connected to Boisseaus murder, homicide detectives would like to learn more about where the truck went after the murder and after the victim was left in the Waiparous area.

Investigators say Boisseau, 29, went missing in November 2016 and was killed between the late hours of Dec. 26, 2016, and early the next morning in an apartment in the 600 block of 1st Avenue N.E. in Calgary.

His body was then transported in a brown 1990 Ford F-250, according to police, who say the registered owner of the vehicle is not believed to be involved in the offence.

Anyone who saw the Ford F-250 truck in the Bridgeland area on the night of the homicide or in the Waiparous area is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service Homicide Tip Line at 403-428-8877.

Investigators are trying to determine where the truck went, both after Boisseau was killed, as well as after his body was transported to the Waiparous area.

We are looking for someone who may have seen that brown Ford F-250 immediately before the homicide or afterwards, whether its between Bridgeland or here, Chisholm says.

An additional set of photos comes from CCTV footage in the parking lot behind the apartment building where police believe the homicide took place. Police say the Ford F-250 was likely parked there before the body was transported.

Police tell CTV News that new evidence connected to the death of Jeremy Boisseau has been found and there are suspects in the incident, but the investigation is still ongoing.

Investigators are still working to obtain CCTV footage from the night of Dec. 26, 2016, and early morning of Dec. 27, 2016.

Members of Boisseaus family issued a plea for help from the public earlier this month, saying his loss is an impossible and indescribable feeling.

Anyone who saw the Ford F-250 truck in the Bridgeland area on the night of the homicide or in the Waiparous area is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service Homicide Tip Line at 403-428-8877, the Calgary Police Service at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

Calgary police say they've found new evidence in the 2016 homicide of Jeremy Boisseau and will conduct another search of the area where his body was eventually found. 

It's believed Boisseau was killed sometime between the late hours of Dec. 26 and the early morning of Dec. 27, 2016, in an apartment in the 600 block of First Avenue N.E. 

The type of evidence that were searching for, we cant expand upon that to protect the integrity of the investigation.

It's unclear what evidence was uncovered last week, but police said it was discovered in the area where Boisseau was found.

Central to the investigation is a 1990 Ford F-250 that was used to move Boisseau's body, according to police. Investigators are trying to determine the truck's movements after the killing and after the body was transported. 

Anyone who saw the Ford F-250 truck in the Bridgeland area on the night of the homicide or in the Waiparous area is asked to contact the homicide tip line at 403-428-8877, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
