IHIT seeks public help in death of Coquitlam athlete

Homicide 'wasn't random'

Homicide investigators are looking for information in the death of a Coquitlam man whose body was found in Maple Ridge earlier this month.

The body of Edi Bogere-Nyigwo was found on a forested property Jan. 11. He had not been seen since leaving his home at 7 p.m. Dec. 27.

Sgt. Frank Jang of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said police do not believe the death is linked to any gang conflict and are asking anyone with any information to come forward.

"We don't believe Edi's death was random," Jang said. "We believe there are still those with important information who have yet to speak with us.

"His friends describe him as someone who avoided trouble, and many are wondering why anyone would harm him," Jang said.

The 24-year-old was an avid athlete and a member of the Coquitlam Sparta SC U-18 team that took home a Canadian National Championship in 2013.

Anyone with information is asked to call IHIT at1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email [email protected]
