Residents searching an abandoned 1.8-metre-deep septic tank to retrieve a pump discovered the victim's decomposing remains. The victim had been rolled up in a yellow bedsheet tied with nylon rope and thrown head-first into the septic tank.
An autopsy revealed that he had been shot several times, burned with a blowtorch and cigarettes, beaten, and sexually mutilated. His body was then covered in limestone.
Police suspect the killer(s) was familiar with the area given the rural location of the abandoned and derelict property.
Based upon the victim's clothing, it is suspected that he was a farm laborer or construction worker and was likely not from Alberta. He was nicknamed "Septic Tank Sam" by investigators and laid to rest in an unmarked, pauper's grave in an Edmonton Cemetery.
