In News by Anywhere Vancouver

The Integrated Homicide Investigation team (IHIT) has been called in to investigate a “suspicious death” in Hope.

Police received a report of a deceased person in the 900 block of Old Hope Princeton Way in Hope Friday evening.



“Frontline police officers attended the scene and located the body of a 46-year old man, whose death appeared to be the result of homicide,” said Sgt. Timothy Pierotti in a release.

Investigators say the victim is from Chilliwack, but are not releasing his name at this time to allow his family to be notified properly.

Initial evidence suggests this was an isolated incident with no ongoing risk to the public.



“We are in the beginning stages of our investigation,” added Sgt. Timothy Pierotti. “We’re asking anyone with information to please come forward.”



Anyone with information is asked to call IHIT at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448).
