Four people charged in Canada Day homicide in Kelowna

Esa Carriere was killed following an altercation in the Downtown core

Three men and one woman have now been charged with manslaughter in relation to the 2018 death of Esa Carriere.

On July 1, 2018 at approximately 10:50 p.m., the Kelowna RCMP received reports of a violent altercation in the 1400 block of Water Street in Kelowna’s downtown core. Police responded to the vicinity of the Queensway bus loop where they discovered 23-year-old Esa Carriere on the ground suffering from life threatening injuries.

He later succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

This was a complex and resource intensive homicide investigation, which spanned multiple jurisdictions, states Insp. Laura Livingstone, Investigative Services Officer (I.S.O.) of the Kelowna Regional Detachment.
