The victim of a “suspicious death” in Surrey has been identified as a 19-year-old Alberta man.
Just before 5:30 am on Sunday, Surrey RCMP was called to the 6900 Block of 127A Street. Upon their arrival, officers found an unresponsive adult victim in a residential laneway.
The victim ultimately succumbed to their injuries, and now the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called in to help investigate the circumstances surrounding the death.
In the meantime, the victim has been identified as Tanner Krupa, from Edmonton.
“The investigation is in its early stages and it is unknown if the incident was targeted,” says Cpl. Frank Jang of IHIT.
IHIT is working closely with the Surrey RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Section and the BC Coroner’s Service to gather evidence.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at [email protected].
