The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is now handling a case involving the discovery of a man's body inside a Surrey home located at 84th Avenue near 135TH Street – Jan 10, 2022

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has identified the man found dead in a Surrey home Sunday as 62-year-old Brian Chapman.

Officers were called on Jan. 9 around 6 p.m. to a home in the 13500 block of 84 Avenue after reports came in of a deceased man inside.

RCMP found Chapman dead in the house. Investigators said Wednesday that Chapman was known to police, but had no history with law enforcement since 2020.

IHIT said the killing was not believed to be random, but that it did not appear to be connected to the ongoing Lower Mainland Gang Conflict.

Police said the initial evidence suggests a shooting happened inside the home around 7 a.m. but it went unreported until the victim was found around 6 p.m.
