The Lanark County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), under direction of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch, is seeking potential video from the public in relation to last week’s homicide in Carleton Place.

Shortly before 1:00 p.m., members with the OPP Tactics and Rescue Unit (TRU) and OPP Emergency Response Team (ERT) arrested the accused without incident.
