Family asks for help to find who killed Edmonton man with his own truck

Edmonton police have released video surveillance footage of a suspect in a fatal hit and run in the hopes the public can help to identify the man, CHED AM reports.

The footage of the suspect was taken at a liquor store in the area of 45 Street and 118 Avenue at approximately 1:40 a.m. on June 13.

Other video was taken from a vehicle dash cam seconds after Adam Groves, who was 33, was killed as he tried to stop a man from stealing his work pickup truck later that same day.

The suspect is male, in his 30s, approximately 6 feet tall, with a medium build, medium length brown/black hair, and may be wearing jeans, and a red and white horizontal striped shirt.

While at the liquor store, the suspect was also believed to be wearing a distinctive baseball cap with a silkscreened image that says "Big Blunt — Join the Sky High Club."

Groves's family released a statement on Monday, pleading with the suspect to "do the right thing" and turn himself in.

"Although we see Adam's death as a tragedy, he died a hero," said Desire Poulin, Groves's sister-in-law.

"He was a great father, one who always made sure his family was provided for."

Poulin said Groves is survived by his wife and two children, a seven-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl.

"If there's anyone out there who knows anything about the incident, or about the suspect, please contact police immediately....We're hurting, we need justice for Adam."
