BURNABY, B.C. — Homicide detectives have identified the two people found dead in a vehicle in Burnaby, B.C., on Monday.
A statement from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says the bodies of 24-year-old Kiesha Garie and 30-year-old Umair Kasim were inside the vehicle, parked in a neighbourhood in northwest Burnaby.
The Coquitlam couple had recently been reported missing.
Detectives say they are working with RCMP in Coquitlam and Burnaby to build a timeline between the period when Garie and Kasim were last seen and when their bodies were found.
Homicide team Sgt. Timothy Pierotti says the investigation is complex and covers multiple jurisdictions.
He says police know people saw Garie and Kasim in the week before they died and he urges any witnesses to come forward.
