The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team identified the victims of this “suspicious double death” in Surrey on June 19.
“This is a tragic death which has left three children without their parents, the family of the victims are asking for privacy during this extremely difficult time,” IHIT spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Pound said in a media release.
The couple’s cause of death is still unknown as police wait for the autopsy results, which could take several weeks. Last Wedenesday, Surrey RCMP had reached the home of the couple on 67 Street and 145A Avenue in Surrey after the incident was reported.
On Thursday, many neighbours expressed shock that death had come to the quiet residential neighbourhood, although several said there had been trouble between the couple before.
