Police are investigating the discovery of two bodies since midnight in an area of Surrey where two slaying victims were found since the beginning of the year.
While on patrol at about 2 a.m. Wednesday, RCMP found an unresponsive man on the side of the road, the regional homicide squad said.
When additional officers and a police dog were called to the scene, they found a second body – a female – nearby at about 6 a.m.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said both victims appear to have met with foul play.
“As both of the victims have yet to be identified, there are many questions that will remain unanswered,” Sergeant Jennifer Pound, team spokespersons, said in a statement.
She said police will have to identify the two new victims before being able to determine if there are any links to the other two previous victims.
In January, the body of a gang member was found in the same area. On Feb. 24, the body of a man known to police was also found in the same area.
