Vancouver Police are asking for the public’s help to identify the source of a significant amount of blood, left in a trail spanning approximately two blocks.

Early Sunday morning, police responded to a home on East 6th Avenue near Brunswick Street after paramedics found a seriously injured man inside the house. He was taken to the hospital, and later died from his injuries.

During the course of the investigation and a neighbourhood canvass, police found a the trail of blood from Scotia Street and East 6th Avenue to the south lane of East 6th Avenue and St. George.

It does not appear that the blood trail is connected to the suspicious death.

“We are reaching out to the public to help us determine if someone was injured late Saturday night or early Sunday morning,” said VPD spokesperson Sergeant Randy Fincham. “At this point, it’s a mystery as to where the blood came from.”

Investigators are submitting samples for DNA analysis, but the results could take some time.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Vancouver Police Major Crime Section at(604) 717-2541 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 222-8477.
