File # 2023-998

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has deployed to Mission after a stabbing victim succumbed to his injuries.

Background: 

On July 13, 2023, at 6:13 p.m., the Mission RCMP were called to the area of the 32500-block of Lougheed Highway. Upon arrival, officers discovered a 42-year old man, suffering from a stab wound. The victim was transported to a local hospital, where sadly, he succumbed to his injuries. Multiple witnesses identified a 37-year old suspect who was taken into custody. IHIT has taken conduct of the investigation and is working closely in partnership with the Mission RCMP, the BC Coroners Service and the RCMP Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS). 

The victim has been identified as a 42-year old man from Mission. Investigators are not releasing the victim’s name at this time, to allow for proper notification of the family.

Investigators will continue to be in the area throughout the day, says Sgt. Timothy Pierotti, of IHIT. This is an isolated incident and thanks to the quick response of the Mission RCMP members, there is no ongoing risk to the public.

IHIT is asking anyone with information about the incident to contact IHIT directly at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
