The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) is continuing their investigation into the homicide death of one male and injuries to one female which began late on December 24th, 2019 in Duncan, BC (read original news release here).
On December 28, 2019, the female victim died in hospital. This is now being treated as a double homicide.
Early indications are this was a targeted attack and the investigative team are continuing to gather evidence and pursue several leads, including two male persons of interest.
Once again, police are urging anyone with information to come forward or call the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit information line at 250-380-6211. We are particularly interested in speaking with people who were in the area of Trunk Road and Duncan Street or Canada Avenue between 10:30 and 11:00 p.m. on the night of December 24, 2019 including those who may have dash cam footage or other video surveillance.
The families of the victims request that their privacy be respected at this difficult time.
