“Based on the investigative theory in this initial phase, this does not appear to be a random act,” Largy said.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been deployed and will be working in partnership with Langley RCMP.
A short time later, a Ford F150 fully engulfed in flames was located in the area of 232nd Street and 76th Avenue.
“Police are requesting any witnesses who may have seen the vehicle or have dash camera footage of a F-F150 driving erratically (possibly with the lights off) to please contact investigators at IHIT,” Largy elaborated, explaining that police are currently in the evidence gathering phase.
