Abbotsford: On February 15, 2022, the Abbotsford Police Department (AbbyPD) while on routine patrol, were called to assist a male victim who had been stabbed in Inspiration Park. The male victim was located and transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Despite medical intervention, the male victim succumbed to his injuries. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) was called in to investigate.

To further the investigation, the victim has been identified as 30-year-old Cody Corbett. Corbett is known to police. At this time, homicide investigators believe the stabbing was targeted and not random. There is also no known connection with the Lower Mainland gang conflict.

IHIT is working in partnership with AbbyPD, the AbbyPD Forensic Identification Section (FIS), and the BC Coroners Service. The crime scene areas in Inspiration Park have been secured and searched. A ground search is pending.

Mr. Corbett lived a transient lifestyle but had contact with people in the community, said Sergeant David Lee of IHIT, anyone who knew of his activities is being asked to call IHIT.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the IHIT Information Line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
