A Surrey hockey mom who was beaten and later died will be honoured at a benefit concert tonight.
Fifty-three-year-old Julie Paskall was killed nearly five months ago in the parking lot of the Newton Recreation Centre in a seemingly random robbery attempt.
Her injuries were so severe the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was called in immediately. Paskall died in hospital on New Year’s Eve.
The brutal violence shocked the community and prompted some residents of Surrey to demand the city and the police do more to keep them safe.
There have been no arrests made in the murder of Paskall to date.
Tonight, friends have organized a benefit concert to remember her at The Wise Hall in Vancouver.
