On July 29, 2023 around 2:30 a.m. police were called to the 2100 block of Broad Street for the report of an injured man, who was later pronounced dead by EMS.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for Atem in August of 2023. Regina police then expanded their search to include Samuel on Feb. 15.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact Regina police or Crime Stoppers.

Regina police has warned residents to not approach Atem if he is spotted and to contact authorities immediately.
