If you drove past the Moose Jaw landfill on Thursday you may have been wondering why local authorities were out there.

RCMP have now packed up and left the Moose Jaw landfill after spending a portion of Thursday searching for evidence in the suspected murder of a 48-year-old man from Kincaid.

Investigators were searching the area as they continue to build their case against two men accused in the disappearance of Claude Landry, although in total three people are now facing charges.

Claude Landry was reported missing two weeks ago, with his body being found southwest of Gravelbourg in recent days. It's not clear if anything was found at the local dump, but officials have said that the Moose Jaw portion of the investigation has concluded.

74-year-old Robert Arams of Gravelbourg has been charged with first degree murder and causing indignity to a body, while 42-year old David Earl Prentice is charged with causing indignity to a body.

On Thursday, RCMP announced that 41-year-old Shauna Prentice from Lafleche was charged with providing a false sworn statement to police investigators, but she was not officially charged in connection to Landry’s death.
