Williams Lake RCMP responded to a residence on Mountain House Road on Tuesday Dec. 11, 2018 at 9:35 p.m. where upon attendance an adult male was discovered deceased.

The man’s death was considered suspicious in nature at that time, which resulted in Williams Lake RCMP seeking the assistance of the RCMP North District Major Crime Unit (MCU).

“North District Major Crime and Williams Lake General Investigating Section continue to target the violent offenders responsible for this homicide,” stated Insp. Jeff Pelley, OIC Williams Lake RCMP detachment. “This is the second offender to be charged on this investigation that has impacted many families locally. Strategies to continue targeting offenders responsible for violence remain a detachment priority to enhance public safety.”
