Shooting Targeted

Police look to public for tips on Hazel Street murder

Released by RCMP IHIT


IHIT spokesperson Sgt. Stephanie Ashton told the Voice that access to Hazel St. would be opening soon.

ust after 11:00 p.m. on January 12th 2015 Chilliwack RCMP were called to a car crash at the 9600 block of Hazel Street in Chilliwack.

Police on scene quickly determined the lone male occupant had sustained fatal injuries.

The injuries to the male are believed to be inconsistent with the crash and as a result the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken custody of the investigation.

The victim has not been identified pending notification of the next of kin.

The investigation is still in the early stages; IHIT continues to work in partnership with Chilliwack RCMP, the Forensic Identification Section and ICARS to determine what occurred.

Anyone with information related to this investigation can call the IHIT Tipsline at 1-877-551-4448.

Editor's Note: The victim has since been identified as Chilliwack resident Stuart David Ellis, 39.
