Murder/suicide investigated in Hope

Two deceased males discovered inside residence on Othello Road.

Just before 2:30 am on Jan. 13, the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD) received a call to attend the 69100 block of Othello Road in Hope as two deceased males were located inside a residence.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has now completed the crime scene examination.

Initial attendance led investigators to believe that this was a double homicide, however, further evaluation by IHIT, UFVRD (Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment) and LMDIFIS (Lower Mainland District Integrated Forensic Identification Section) has confirmed this investigation to be a murder/suicide.

The deceased males have been identified as 26 year old Alec Lamb and 29 year old Tylor Insley.  The family of both men have been notified.

Investigators continue to investigate the details that led up to the homicide and the motive for this shooting.

“We know that within smaller communities an incident such as this can instill a great deal of fear in the public.  IHIT would like to ensure the public that this was not a random attack, but a targeted shooting between two males that were known to each other,” says Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson for the UFVRD.
