On Tuesday Sept. 25th, the RCMP Saskatchewan Major Crimes Historical Case Unit North made an arrest and laid charges in the death of Katelyn Marie Noble who was last seen on August 27, 2007 in the Radisson area.

Katelyn was 15 years old at the time of her disappearance and the investigation into her death has been extensive and complex. The 11-year long investigation has spanned the country from Ontario to British Columbia. It has been a long and stressful period for her family and today, investigators hope these developments begin to provide Katelyn's family with some measure of comfort.

Viktorovit Baranec (born July 17th, 1977) was arrested today at a Federal Prison in British Columbia where he is currently a serving prisoner on another matter.

Baranec is charged with the First-degree murder of Katelyn Noble, contrary to Section 235 of the Criminal Code and Indignity to a human body, contrary to Section 182(b) of the Criminal Code.
