File # 2013-509

On February 20, 2013, Surrey man Vimal Chand was found deceased in the family car near 140 St. in Surrey. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team took conduct of the investigation.

In an effort to remind the public of this homicide and to locate witnesses who have not been spoken to, IHIT has produced a video with the help of Mr. Chand’s sister.

This is the second unsolved homicide video produced by IHIT.


Sgt. Stephanie Ashton: It has been 3 years since the death of Surrey man Vimal Chand. Investigators with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team are asking for information from anyone who didn’t come forward during the initial investigation.

29 year old Vimal Chand was last seen at about 6:00 p.m. on February 16, 2013. He told family members he was going to the store to buy cigarettes. He was reported missing by his father the next day.

Mr. Chand was found deceased in the family vehicle on February 20, 2013. Witnesses in the area of 140th street near 66th avenue stated the car had been parked for several days.

Mr Chand’s family is hoping for answers to ease their suffering at the loss of their son and brother, if you know something now is the time to come forward.

Karishma : You cannot imagine what it feels like to know your brother has gone out to the grocery store, only to wonder for four days where he is and then receive the devastating news that someone has taken his life.

This is what happened to my family. On February 20, 2013 my brother Vimal Chand was found dead in his car. He had been missing for four days.

It is my hope that someone who knows what happened to him will come forward. My mother and father are not the same since Vimal’s death and knowing the person responsible has been caught may help them to heal.

Vimal was like the glue that held our family together. He was the best big brother a sister could ask for. He was supportive of my career and took care of my parents. I know he was proud of me.

I was married shortly before Vimal died and all he asked was when will you have babies. Now he will never meet my son.

Our family is not the same and we know nothing will bring back Vimal, but knowing his killer has been caught could bring my mother, father, and me some peace.

Someone has information that can help solve my brother’s murder. I am pleading with you to come forward to talk to police.
