THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has arrested Darius Commodore, 24, and David Geoghegan, 30, for the murder of Jordan Smyth.
On November 1, 2019, at around 7:01 a.m., Chilliwack RCMP responded to a call and found the body of 26-year-old Jordan Smyth near Sleepy Hollow Road in the Cultus Lake area of Chilliwack. There was evidence of foul play and IHIT was called to investigate.
After 19 months working with its partners, at the Integrated Forensic Identification Section, the National Forensic Laboratory Section, and the Chilliwack RCMP, IHIT attained sufficient evidence for approval of charges in the murder of Smyth.
On June 25, 2021, with the assistance of the Abbotsford Police Department, the Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team, the Integrated Police Dog Services, RCMP Air 1, and the Chilliwack RCMP, Commodore and Geoghegan were arrested. Both individuals are known to police.
Commodore from Chilliwack, was arrested in Abbotsford.
Geogehgan, who was living in Chilliwack, was arrested in Chilliwack.
Charges of first-degree murder have been approved by the BC Prosecution Service against Commodore and Geogehgan.
“A tremendous amount of investigative work resulted in these charges being approved,” said IHIT Sgt. David Lee. “The investigation remains ongoing and we know there are individuals with information related to Mr. Smyth’s murder and we are asking them to come forward.”
