Edmonton Husband and Father Found Dead, Homicide Unit Investigating

A missing Edmonton husband and father, 35-year-old Karar Jawad, who was last seen on July 30, has been found dead. The police homicide unit is leading the investigation. Jawad was last seen driving a gold Toyota Camry, and his family reported that his disappearance was out of character. He told them he had to go out but would be home in the afternoon. When he didn’t return, his family became concerned and contacted the police.

Ten days later, on August 9, investigators discovered Jawad’s remains. The police have not disclosed the cause of death or the location where the remains were found in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation. However, the police believe his death is suspicious.

As part of the investigation, the police have released a video of Jawad’s Camry being driven back and forth in an alley near 139th Avenue and 89th Street between 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. on July 30. Detectives are seeking anyone with CCTV footage of the Camry or anyone who has knowledge of the vehicle’s previous whereabouts.

Jawad’s loved ones are grieving his death, describing him as the glue that held their tight-knit family together. It is particularly tragic for his family as his brother, Nawar Jawad, was also killed fifteen years ago. Nawar’s burned and frozen body was discovered in December 2007, and at the time, he was the prime suspect in the murder of Ola Moses in May 2007.

This case remains under investigation by the police homicide unit.
