Surrey: The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is calling on the public to assist its ongoing investigation into the murder of a 30-year-old man.

On November 11, at approximately 4:52 p.m., Surrey RCMP received a call for assistance from a home in the 10700-block of 124 Street. When officers arrived on scene, they found Andrew Baldwin unresponsive with critical injuries. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Integrated Police Dog Services was brought in to conduct a search for the suspect, who was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants with reflective material around the bottom of the pant leg.  He was last seen northbound on 124 Street from the scene. Mr. Baldwin’s death was deemed a homicide and IHIT was then called in to take conduct of the investigation.

IHIT is working closely with the Surrey RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Services and the B.C. Coroners Service to gather further evidence.

The investigation is still in its early stages and investigators are working to determine a motive.

“We urge anyone with details of Andrew Baldwin’s activities before his unfortunate death, to come forward and speak to investigators,” says Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT. “We also urge any witnesses and drivers with dash cam video who were in the area of Old Yale and Scott Road to contact us, so we can ultimately determine those responsible.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551- IHIT (4448), or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
