The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is investigating after two people were found dead inside a Surrey home on November 21.

According to IHIT, frontline officers with the Surrey RCMP were called to the residence of the 14000-block of 102A Avenue shortly before 5 pm on November 21.

They located two deceased people inside the residence and called in IHIT to the scene.

“Although our investigation is in its early stages, at this time it appears as though one of the deceased was the victim of a homicide. We are working hard to gather evidence to identify the events surrounding this tragedy,” said Cst. Harrison Mohr with IHIT in a release.

“We are not looking for any outstanding suspects, and can confirm that both persons knew each other.”

The incident is believed to be isolated with no risk to the public. The victims were known to each other.

IHIT investigators, and the Victim Services Unit from Surrey RCMP, are in the process of reaching out to the family and friends of the victims.

“We will be offering our support to them, and seeking any information they can provide,” said IHIT in a statement.

Investigators could be in the area for several days as officers continue to process evidence.
