Brother of slain teen in hospital

The brother of murdered teen CJ Fowler was involved in a traffic incident and is in a Vancouver hospital with a brain injury.

Around 5 p.m. on Dec. 15 he was hit by the side mirror window of a passing truck while he was a pedestrian, according to an RCMP release. The 30-year-old driver of the truck was sober and cooperative with police.

Sixteen-year-old CJ Fowler was found murdered in Kamloops earlier this month. Her death is still under investigation, with police releasing this week a surveillance-footage photo of her leaving a Kamloops hospital near 3 a.m. the morning of her murder.

Her 20-year-old brother was in Terrace from Prince George for the funeral.
