THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team announced on Sunday that it has taken over conduct of the homicide investigation in Abbotsford and identified the victim as 61-year-old Jeevan Singh Sull of Abbotsford.
Abbotsford Police had announced on March 19 that Abbotsford Emergency Services responded to a 911 hang up call in the 32300-block of Slocan Drive on March 3. An injured male was located and transported to hospital. The male had since succumbed to his injuries. It said IHIT was taking over conduct of the case but gave no other details.
IHIT said the man succumbed to his injuries on March 14 and that since then it has been working closely with Abbotsford Police and the B.C. Coroner’s Service to gather evidence and complete priority tasks.
“This is believed to be an isolated incident between parties known to each other, however IHIT is appealing for witnesses,” said Detective Lara Jansen of IHIT.
According to his obituary that appeared online, Sull was born in Lions Gate Hospital on February 14, 1960, to Paulo and Tara Singh Sull. “Jeevan graduated from North Vancouver Senior Secondary and attended Capilano College. His employment extended over the years, from CBSA and Royal Roads University.”
It added: “Jeevan was a kind and gentle soul. He had a passion for gardening and cooking, and was known for being very generous (he would give you the shirt off his back).”
“Investigators believe there may have been witnesses in the area who have information, including dash-cam video and CCTV. We are urging anyone who was in the 32000-block of Slocan Drive on March 3, 2021, between 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., to contact IHIT.”
