The death is considered suspicious and is currently being investigated by the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit, with assistance from the RCMP.

Evidence connected to Wolf’s disappearance was discovered in Calgary’s Elliston Park and a subsequent search of the park occurred on Feb. 4.

In the mid-afternoon hours of Feb. 4, the body was located. Officers were able to make a preliminary identification and notify next of kin that they believed they had found Wolf.

Calgary Police said they will release no further information until the autopsy can confirm cause and manner of death. The autopsy is planned for Feb. 7.

“We are determined to get to the bottom of what happened to Mr. Wolf. No visitor should ever have to come to our city and be concerned about their safety,” said Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta with the Calgary Police. “At this time, we believe he willingly met with individuals who he had no previous relationship with prior to coming to Calgary.”
