A third person has been arrested in connection with a homicide in Manitoba's Interlake, and police say they're looking for another man who they believe was involved.

RCMP say they arrested Perry Durocher, 19, in Winnipeg last Friday.

He has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of a 51-year-old man from Fisher River Cree Nation, RCMP said in a Tuesday news release.

Last week, police said two Fisher River Cree Nation girls, ages 16 and 14, were arrested on June 5 and charged with manslaughter in connection with the man's death.

The victim, whom police have not named, was reported missing on June 1. His body was recovered in the rural municipality of Fisher after a police search on June 2, RCMP previously said.

Police continue to look for Jerome Moore, 23, who has also been charged with manslaughter in the man's death.

The RCMP emergency response team searched for Moore in the community on Friday but they couldn't find him. 

Moore is considered violent and the public is advised not to approach him, RCMP said.

Police also said that investigators are aware that video and photos related to the incident have been circulating.

They're asking anyone who has videos or photos to contact the Fisher Branch RCMP at 204-372-8484 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or leave a secure tip online at manitobacrimestoppers.com.
