The police are asking for the public’s help after a missing persons case turned into a homicide investigation.
On January 23, 2019, 38-year-old Rajwinder Bains was reported as missing.
Members of the Surrey RCMP were notified by her family and a missing persons case was initiated.
Extensive ground searches, interviews, and area canvasing were all conducted. During the course of the investigation, however, Bains’ body was found and her death is now being investigated as a homicide.
