Larry Robert Mizen identified as Sunday’s murder victim in Surrey




THE Province newspaper reported in August 2006: “Larry Robert Mizen, 45, of Surrey has been charged with forcible confinement, extortion, robbery, assault, assault with a weapon, sexual assault, weapons possession and uttering threats against sex-trade workers, street-level criminals and drug addicts in North Surrey. Further charges are expected.”

Now a local newspaper says that Mizen, 54, is the man who was found dead last Sunday (October 19) just after 8:30 p.m. in a residence in the 11000 block of 136 Street in Surrey and that IHIT has confirmed it to them.

Earlier in the day, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said that the victim is  believed to have met with foul play and an autopsy will be required to confirm his cause of death.

Responding to a call for a disturbance, Surrey RCMP, the BC Ambulance Service and the Surrey Fire Department found a dead male in the basement suite of the residence.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team took over the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT tipline at 1-877-551-4448, or, to remain anonymous call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
