File # 2018-10615

The RCMP North District Major Crime Unit and Williams Lake RCMP carried out the arrest of a 29-year-old Clinton man who now faces murder charges in the 2018 death of Jamie Sellars Baldwin.

On Tuesday December 11, 2018 at 9:35 p.m., Williams Lake RCMP responded to a residence on Mountain House Road, where upon attendance an adult male was discovered deceased. The man’s death was considered suspicious in nature at that time, which resulted in Williams Lake RCMP seeking the assistance of the RCMP North District Major Crime Unit (MCU).

On Friday December 6, 2019 a suspect in the homicide of, 43-year-old Deep Creek resident, Jamie Baldwin was taken into police custody in the Clinton area without incident. Wyatt Lee Boffa has now been formally charged, by the BC Prosecution Service, with first degree murder. He remains in police custody at this time.

Major crime investigators have remained committed, to Baldwin’s family and the entire community, to piecing together the circumstances surrounding his sudden death, states Insp. Jeff Pelley of the Williams Lake RCMP. RCMP will continue to support the victim’s family, the community and the prosecution as the investigation begins to transition to the judicial process.

Although an arrest has been made, the police investigation continues at this time. That criminal investigation is being led by the RCMP North District Major Crime Unit (MCU), who continues to be supported by the Williams Lake RCMP Detachment.

Major crime investigators would like to encourage anyone with any additional information regarding this homicide to come forward and speak with police.
