THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team on Thursday identified the deceased family members found in their Surrey home as Xiao Yan Zhen, 56, Li Li, 58, and Daniel Li, 24.
On January 9 shortly after 12 p.m., Surrey RCMP attended the home in the 15600-block of 112 Avenue and discovered the three deceased adults. IHIT took conduct of the investigation and continue to work closely in partnership with the Surrey RCMP, the BC Coroners Service and the RCMP Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS).
IHIT said it has been in close contact with Li’s extended family and supporting them.
Zhijun Li provided the following statement on behalf of the grieving extended family:
“When we heard the tragic news, we were strongly shocked with profound sadness. In our memory they were a happy family, loving each other. Thanks to police and all who provide us with support and help. To respect the deceased, it is our hope that the acquaintances and friends of them do not disclose the details of the family to the public, and no photos of them appear in the media.”
Anyone in need of support during the time is asked to reach out to the Surrey RCMP’s Victim Services at 604-599-7600.
