Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) investigators have now identified the victim as 49-year-old Shawn Clarke from Surrey.
IHIT said the victim had been reported missing to the Surrey RCMP on May 1 after having last been seen in Surrey on April 18.
“We are still in the early stages of our investigation. We’ll be working with the Surrey RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit and their Missing Person Unit to advance what’s now become a homicide investigation,” said Sergeant Timothy Pierotti of IHIT.
“From the information we have gathered so far, this does not appear to be connected to the BC Gang Conflict,” he added.
