IHIT investigating homicide in Langley

THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken conduct of an investigation into the homicide of a Langley man. 

On September 30, just before 3 p.m., Langley RCMP frontline members responded to Trinity Western University for a report of an agitated man on campus who was involved in an altercation with campus security.  On arrival, a 31-year-old man was located unresponsive and transported to hospital.  Several days later, IHIT assumed conduct of the investigation. 

IHIT is working closely with the Langley RCMP, Integrated Forensic Identification Services and the BC Coroners Service to gather evidence and complete priority tasks.

“Investigators believe this was an isolated incident, not related to the ongoing Lower Mainland Gang Conflict and that there are no ongoing public safety concerns,” said IHIT Detective Lara Jansen.  “This investigation is in its early stages; however, there are no further updates at this time.” 

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca
