Hi I'm Inspector Jamie George with Codiac Regional RCMP. Right now, along with the RCMP Major Crime Unit, one of our main priorities is to find 20-year-old Marissa Shephard who is wanted on a Canada wide warrant for first degree murder and arson.
She is wanted for the extremely violent homicide of 18-year-old Baylee Wylie.

I am asking everyone who watches this video to look at the pictures of Marissa Shephard closely. We know she is very capable of changing her looks and could be just about anywhere. That's why it's important you look at her pictures closely.
She is 5 feet 5 inches tall, has naturally brown hair and brown eyes. We have confirmed that she has two tattoos; one is the name Stephen, spelled with a 'ph" on the back of her neck and the other is a crown on her chest.

Lots of information and photos have been circulating on social media and investigators have checked into that information along with dozens of tips, but as of the recording of this video, none have led to the arrest of Marissa Shephard.
