Unsolved Homicide of Anthony Gunn


Anthony Gunn

Anthony Gunn

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan — Chelsey Gunn, whose brother Anthony was killed over a decade ago, at her home in Saskatoon on Jan. 21, 2020 said she was eight months pregnant when she woke up at 2 a.m. on a late August, 2010 morning with a feeling of dread - an instinct, she calls it - gnawing at her about her younger brother.

Anthony Gunn should not have been in Saskatoon that night. He was supposed to be out of town for work, painting at a construction project. But he and Chelsey were preparing to move in together and she had needed help with the cable hookup, so he’d returned home a day early and was staying with their mother.

Chelsey called their mother's house to check on him, but no one answered. She tried calling again and again. Eventually, her teen brother answered and said Tony, as he was known to the family, was lying in a pool of blood, moaning.

Chelsey gathered her children and walked over to the home in the 600 block of Avenue M South. Yellow police tape surrounded it.

"That's when I knew, then and there, he was gone," she said.

At some point in the ensuing years, the police investigation into Anthony's death went from being just an "unsolved" case to a "historic" one, joining more than 20 historic homicides or suspicious missing person's cases in the caseload of the Saskatoon Police Service’s historical cases section.

Though time has passed, police say these cases are not "cold" - it is still possible for new evidence to emerge and new witnesses to come forward. The cases can still be cracked, even with the passage of months, years or decades.

Anthony Gunn's death was first considered a suspicious death, but police soon upgraded it to a homicide. He was 23. His August 26th death was recorded as Saskatoon's seventh homicide of 2010. No one has been charged.

Chelsey continues to hope that charges will be laid in her brother's case.

I moved there from Sudbury, ON, I now have also lived in Vancouver, BC for 10 years. The talks of bad things in Red Deer is a joke. Vancouver/Lower Mainland obvs has a lot of crime with larger population & favorable weather. Compare Red Deer to Sudbury for a more accurate comparison, and I'll tell you Sudbury is by far worse. Like, by far.
