Police have also confirmed the location of a second crime scene at a nearby home in the 14900-block of 35 Avenue.

Investigators spent Wednesday at the home collecting evidence, while detectives with the Surrey RCMP serious crimes unit are expected to spend the days to come canvassing the neighbourhood.

Neighbours have told Global News that police had visited the home several times in the last week, including one visit in which they were accompanied by a nurse.

Property records show the home is owned by someone named Anna Chao.
