The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) has concluded their physical evidence gathering at the scene near the Melrose Forest Service Road in rural Qualicum Beach where three bodies were discovered on November 1st 2020.

As the investigators from several different agencies continue to work tirelessly, they are now appealing to the public for assistance on two aspects of the investigation.

The gravel pit on Melrose Road is a popular area for quadders, dirt bikers and 4x4 enthusiasts. Investigators are hoping to speak with anyone who was in the area on November 1st or evening/late night October 31st and may have video such as Go Pro or helmet cam footage says Corporal Chris Manseau, Media Relations Officer for the BC RCMP. Also, it’s believed that two individuals, were near the scene on Highway 19 in the early morning of November 1st and may have flagged down a motorist driving a light coloured sedan who provided them with a ride. The driver who picked up these individuals is being asked to reach out to police. They unknowingly may have information crucial to this investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the VIIMCU information line at 250-380-6211
