On August 20, 2017 just after 5:00 a.m., the Surrey RCMP received a report of an altercation in the 6900-block of 127A Street. Police arrived to find 19-year-old Tanner Krupa dead in a back alleyway and determined he was the victim of homicide.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) continues to actively investigate Tanner’s murder and detectives have been diligently following the evidence trail, which has helped in piecing some of the details together.
During the course of the investigation, IHIT learned that a group of males was involved in the altercation that led to Tanner’s death. Investigators believe some of the males in the group did not participate in the assault but were bystanders with first-hand information about what happened to Tanner. This same group of males is believed to be associated to a white Toyota Corolla and a white Honda Civic that were captured on video surveillance. IHIT would like to speak with anyone that has information about any of these vehicles.
It has been a long year for the family of Tanner Krupa, who are eagerly seeking answers to what happened to their loved one, says Corporal Frank Jang of IHIT. We strongly urge those with knowledge of what happened to Tanner to come forward.
