A home on the 600-block of Victoria Avenue, where Earl Daniel Beebe was found dead on Dec. 28. The Brandon Police Service, which has deemed the death a homicide, is asking that anyone with information regarding the incident contact the force.

Citizens are urged to call police with any detail — no matter how small — if they think it relates to the investigation into the killing of Earl Daniel Beebe.

"Even though you may think it’s insignificant, it may very well be significant," Brandon Police Service Sgt. Mike Pelechaty said.

Detectives haven’t exhausted all avenues of investigation, Pelechaty said, but some help would be appreciated.

The body of Beebe, 39, was found in his Victoria Avenue apartment in the early morning of Dec. 28 after firefighters put out a small fire in the suite.

Shortly after, Brandon police announced that they considered the death suspicious.

Then, after an autopsy confirmed that Beebe’s death was due to multiple stab wounds, police announced that they consider the case a homicide.

Police believe the fire was set to cover up the killing. Otherwise, details such as how many times Beebe was stabbed and with what, and how the fire was started, haven’t been released.

With no word of suspects, police issued a public appeal for information and featured the killing in a Crime Stoppers bulletin.

On Thursday, police said the invitation to call in with any tips remains open.

"We’re asking for the public’s help if they have any information at all in relation to this incident," Pelechaty said.

Those who believe they may have information can call the BPS directly at 204-729-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 204-727-TIPS (8477).

Residents at Beebe’s apartment block, where he resided for a number of years, said he worked at Maple Leaf and lived alone.

He grew up in Wabowden in northern Manitoba. A relative who lives in that area declined comment when reached by the Brandon Sun.
