Burnaby murder victim, Igor Bradaric, 43, was known to police, public help sought for info on crime vehicle

THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team announced Thursday that Wednesday’s murder victim in Burnaby was Igor Bradaric, 43, who was known to police.

On August 12, just after 10:30 a.m., Burnaby RCMP were called to the 4600-block of Midlawn Drive after a report of shots fired and a man lying in the street.

Police found Bradaric suffering from gunshot wounds.  Emergency personnel attempted to revive him, but he succumbed to his injuries.

A 2005 grey Audi station wagon with out-of-province licence plates was seen leaving the area and shortly after this a vehicle matching that description was recovered in Surrey.

Bradaric is known to police, but this is not believed to be connected to the ongoing low level drug dispute under investigation by Surrey RCMP.

IHIT investigators are now working with Burnaby and Surrey RCMP to determine the circumstances leading up to what appears to be a targeted shooting.  Police said they were identifying Bradaric in an effort to find witnesses to his activities prior to his death.

IHIT Sgt. Stephanie Ashton said: “We are dealing with multiple scenes in relation to this incident and ask anyone who may have seen the 2005 grey Audi Station wagon, to contact police and provide this information.”
