The Vancouver Police Department was called to the home on Dieppe Place near Dieppe Drive at around 10 pm on September 17 where they found a man and woman dead and a four-year-old child who wasn’t hurt, but was cowering from the violence.

The man and woman are 24-year-old Xuan Vanvy Bacao and 29-year-old Samantha Le.

In the process of collecting evidence, police realized that someone had also been kidnapped from the home, and they came to the conclusion that both the murder and abduction were targeted.

Then on Monday afternoon, police managed to track down the kidnapped victim and made several arrests.

Anyone with information about these murders is asked to call the Vancouver Police Homicide Unit at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
