Charges laid in Surrey homeless camp homicide

A man has been charged with second-degree murder in the homicide of Carlos Robles Palafox, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team announced on Wednesday.

On June 4, at 8:15 p.m., Palafox’s body was found in a wooded area known as “The Sanctuary”, which is located off King George Boulevard and 128th Street in Surrey. Palafox was new to the Surrey area and had come to find a place to stay. He had only limited contact with the community in this area.

IHIT took conduct of the investigation and on December 16, 35-year-old Invinceable Green was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in connection with Palafox’s death. It is believed the two men had only briefly met before the homicide and that it was not a random incident.
