Ivan Rubanik, an electrician, had been in the Manitoba capital for less than a year.

We saw the yellow [police] tape at the end of the street near work and we knew something had happened, but we didn't know it was Ivan, unfortunately, he adds.

Ivan Rubanik had two children. It was their first Christmas in Canada, and that's not how a first Christmas should be, Jasen Dillon continues.

With his colleagues and the company, he started a fundraiser for the family with the website GoFundMe.

He was smiling all the time. He was happy. He loved the work. He was happy to be here. He was looking forward to his new start here in Canada, adds Jasen Dillon.

The Winnipeg Police Service holds a press conference regarding this murder at noon Friday. This is the 41st murder of the year in the Manitoba capital.
