Murder charges laid in Red Lake homicide investigation

Two suspects charged with second degree murder in October death of 43-year-old John MacDougall.

RED LAKE, Ont. – Two men are facing murder charges in connection with the death of a 43-year-old Red Lake man.

Provincial police have arrested two suspects – 26-year-old Andrew Rae and 31-year-old Jason Kakekagumick – earlier this week and charged with second-degree murder after the body of John MacDougall was found outside in the area of Howey Street in Red Lake on Oct. 29.

Rae was arrested on Tuesday and Kakekagumick was brought in custody in Dryden on Thursday with the assistance of the OPP’s tactical response unit, emergency response team and canine unit.

Both suspects remain in custody and appeared in Kenora court on Friday.

The charges have not been proven in court.
