WANTED: Man Guilty of Manslaughter Has Not Returned to Edmonton Correctional Facility

Garrett Leland Blackman is a wanted 26 year old man in Edmonton.

EDMONTON — On August 12, inmate Garrett L. Blackman failed to return to the Stan Daniels Healing Centre located in Edmonton after an authorized temporary absence was granted to him. The Healing Centre is a minimum security federal institution.

As expected, a warrant for Blackman’s arrest has been issued by the Edmonton Police Service shortly after they were informed by the Correctional Service of Canada about Blackman not returning to complete his sentencing.

Blackman’s description:
  • Garrett L. Blackman is 26 years old, measures 180 cm (5’11”) in height and weighs 118 kg (261 lbs).
  • He has a medium complexion, hazel eyes and brown hair.
  • He has tattoos on his arms, hands, thumbs, back and chest.

    Better yet, manslaughter = minimum security? Since fkn when? So many words to say in anger about this but seriously who really cares anymore especially if they’re putting murderers in minimum security and giving passes. Obviously the safety of the public isn’t a concern, it’s giving freedom to killers. Well done federal government well done…assholes
