Police have identified the man found dead near an abandoned vehicle in Coquitlam, B.C., and the death is being considered suspicious.
Jason Leigh Zellmer, 39, of Surrey was found dead in the 4000-block of Quarry Road early Friday morning.
IHIT says the death does not appear to be random, and investigators believe “Zellmer met with foul play and died as a result of the injuries he sustained.”
An autopsy will determine the exact cause of death.
“IHIT investigators are seeking information from people who saw Mr. Zellmer during the day on Sept. 22, or were in the area of 4900 Quarry Road overnight on Sept. 22, and saw a newer black Hyundai Elantra,” said Cpl. Meghan Foster in a statement.
IHIT is asking that anyone with information regarding this investigation to contact the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 (IHIT).
