RICHMOND — Police say a man murdered in Richmond on Friday was from Surrey.
Twenty-four-year-old Francis Le died after being found with stab wounds in the parking lot of Richmond General Hospital just after 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 27, police say.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken conduct of the investigation.
Police say Le’s death appears to be targeted, adding his murder doesn’t seem to be connected to the two previous homicides that happened in Richmond earlier this month.
IHIT is working with Richmond RCMP to find out what led to the stabbing and to determine where the stabbing took place.
“It is still early in the investigation, and as the motive and offence location remain unknown, investigators are asking anyone with information to contact IHIT,” Cpl. Meghan Foster said.
“It cannot be stressed enough that should one choose to associate themselves with a criminal lifestyle, they are not immune to the dangers and risks that come with it.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448), or by email at email@example.com. Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
