THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team identified the female that was found in Hi-Knoll Park in Surrey on October 31 as Lisa Ann Zielke and say that they believe she met with foul play.
They say Lisa Ann was living a high risk lifestyle in that she was drug dependent and actively working as a sex worker, predominantly in the Surrey area.
IHIT, along with Surrey RCMP, have been working collectively in order to ensure other sex workers are properly warned. Investigators have been canvassing various locations to distribute posters and speak with women who are engaging in a similar lifestyle. Women who are living a high risk lifestyle are being warned to take extra precaution during this time.
Through evidence retrieved and information received investigators now know that Lisa Ann was last seen alive on October 30 at 6:15 p.m. in the 9100 block of King George Boulevard. She was last seen getting into a vehicle at this location. Her body was located 17 hours later in the parking lot of Hi-Knoll Park, located in the 19500 block of Colebrook Road. Found with her body was several pieces of furniture, including a brown sofabed and a wood table and chairs.
“Investigators believe that the timeline of when Lisa Ann was in the park is very close to the timeline that the furniture would have been dumped. The individual(s) who dumped the furniture may have information about her death and police are looking to identify and speak with them,” says Sgt. Jennifer Pound.
An autopsy has been completed however the final conclusion will not be received until the toxicology results are complete.
IHIT is looking to speak with anyone who may have information about this homicide. We are specifically looking to speak with anyone who may have seen Lisa Ann, or who have knowledge of her whereabouts, after 6:15 pm on October 30 and into the following morning on October 31.
