A disturbing discovery inside a Surrey home has led to a homicide investigation after three people were found dead in the Fraser Heights area Monday afternoon.
Surrey RCMP was called to the home near 156th Street and 112th Avenue around noon.
“Upon arrival, officers discovered three deceased persons inside the home, who are believed to be part of the same family. No one else was located at the property,” the Integrated Homicide Investigation Unit said in a release.
At this time, investigators are not releasing the names or ages of those found dead, only that they were all adults.
IHIT did not reveal the cause of death, only that this case is still in the evidence-gathering phase.
“[Investigators] however do not believe that there is any ongoing risk to public safety.”
“Investigators will continue to be in the area speaking to neighbours throughout the day,” said Sgt. Timothy Pierotti, of IHIT.
“Preliminary evidence suggests there is no outstanding suspect, though we are not ruling out any investigative theory.”
