RNC Lay Charges in Waterford Valley Homicide

The RNC has laid charges in connection with a homicide in the Waterford Valley area that occurred in May.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for the arrest of the accused, 26-year-old Sheldon Hibbs, on a charge of second-degree murder.

The last known location for Hibbs was in Alberta.

Hibbs has an array of tattoos on his body. Some of the more notable tattoos include a butterfly tattoo on his left hand, a switchblade on his right jaw, “Truth Hurts” above his right eye, roses on his throat area, and tattoos on his knuckles.

Police are warning the public to not approach the accused, and to contact police immediately if he is seen in the community.

On May 30 police responded to the area of Waterford Valley in St. John’s after a deceased man was found in the area. The man was located near a trail, which runs between Waterford Bridge Road and Topsail Road. Following consultations with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the death of the 68-year-old male from St. John’s was determined to be homicide.
