Two bodies have been found in a rural area of Surrey, B.C., not far from the scene of two similar discoveries earlier this year.
Homicide investigators say they were called to an area along Colebrook Road at around 2 a.m. Wednesday after a Surrey RCMP patrol spotted the body of a man.
A second victim, a woman, was located as a police dog searched the area.
Both victims appear to have met with foul play and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called in to lead the investigation.
“Until the identity has been determined investigators will not know the connection, if any, today’s victims have to each other or to the other two victims found recently in this area,”says Sgt. Jennifer Pound.
The bodies of two men, 26-year-old Jaskaran Singh Sandhu and 29-year-old Amritpal Saran, were dumped along the same dark, rural road in separate incidents on Jan. 29 and Feb. 25.
Both men were known to police but investigators have not tied those cases together.
IHIT will be on scene throughout the day with the assistance of Surrey RCMP and the Integrated Forensics Identification Service (IFIS).
