HOMICIDE – File 2020-9976
On Sunday, March 29, 2020 Prince Albert Police Service responded to 315 MacArthur Drive after friends and family went to the property to check on the wellbeing of the family.
Police found 3 deceased individuals at the property:
- Denis Carrier – age 56
- Sandra Henry – age 56
- Bentlee – age 7
Police also located 5-year-old Kendrah, who was in critical condition.
Immediately, the Criminal Investigation Division and Forensic Identification Section were called to assist with the investigation. Investigators conducted several statements in order to establish a timeline, identify potential suspects, and collect all pertinent evidence. Once it was determined that the four victims were harmed as the result of foul play, police began to focus the investigation on potential suspect(s).
Investigators learned that Nathaniel Carrier, also lived at the MacArthur Drive property and his whereabouts were unknown. Also missing from the residence was a vehicle registered to Denis Carrier.
Nathaniel is the son to Denis and Sandra and the father to Bentlee and Kendrah.
By Sunday evening, RCMP advised the Prince Albert Police Service that the missing vehicle was in La Ronge.
Investigators later located Nathaniel Carrier in Prince Albert and felt confident that he was no longer a risk to public safety.
Since Sunday, investigators have been working to collect evidence and process the crime scene. RCMP Major Crime North is assisting in establishing Nathaniel’s actions while in La Ronge. On Tuesday, the Regina Police Service assisted in collecting evidence from the crime scene.
Once there was sufficient evidence to support the criminal charges, police arrested Nathaniel Carrier. He was arrested Tuesday afternoon without incident and is charged with three counts of First Degree Murder and one count of Attempted Murder.
The investigation is ongoing, but new evidence suggests that the homicides occurred on Saturday, March 28, 2020.
Autopsies will occur today and Thursday. To ensure the integrity of the investigation, police will not be disclosing the cause and manner of death.
