Homicide investigators are searching for answers after three people were found dead in a Fraser Heights home Monday (Jan. 9).
Surrey RCMP say officers attended a residence in the 15600-block of 112 Avenue shortly after noon. Police say they found three deceased persons inside the home. They are believed to be part of the same family.
No one else was located at the property, police say.
One neighbour outside the home, which was cordoned off with police tape, told the Now-Leader on Monday that his son learned French there.
On Tuesday, police issued a statement that hinted the deaths may be a murder suicide.
“Preliminary evidence suggests there is no outstanding suspect, though we are not ruling out any investigative theory,” said Sgt. Timothy Pierotti, of IHIT. “Investigators will continue to be in the area speaking to neighbours throughout the day.”
