Investigators from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team have released the identity of the man whose body was found at a business on River Road, just east of No. 6 Road, early Monday morning.

The homicide victim was Alexander Renney, 20, of Surrey, who was last seen on Sunday night.

“Investigators continue to narrow down the timeline of his last movements and who he was in contact with prior to his death,” IHIT spokesperson Sgt. Stephanie Ashton said.

Renney’s body was found at Mainland Sand and Gravel by a female employee who was coming in for work. Mainland provides sand and gravel for major construction sites.

Investigators said they do not believe the attack was random.
