Braden Herman's body was found on May 11, 2021 in a secluded area of ​​Little Red River Park on the outskirts of Prince Albert.

At approximately 5 p.m. on the day of the murder, Bernie Herman left the police station. The officer was no longer on duty, but he was still wearing his uniform, complete with his utility belt.

Later, Bernie Herman reportedly confessed to the murder to an RCMP colleague during a phone call shortly after the gesture.

I killed someone, he admitted during the call.

In May 2021, the family of the victim indicated that the former RCMP officer had a controlling relationship with 26-year-old Braden Herman.

In July 2021, the victim's brother sued Bernie Herman in civil proceedings.

The 54-year-old former police officer had been a member of the RCMP for 32 years at the time of his arrest in May 2021. He resigned from his position and pleaded not guilty to the charge.
