File # 2019-304

Chilliwack: The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is requesting public assistance to further its investigation into the shooting death of a 42-year-old Chilliwack resident.
On February 26, 2019 just after 1p.m., the Chilliwack RCMP received a report of a woman who had been shot in the 9400-block of Victor Street. Police arrived on scene and found the shooting victim, 42-year-old Christine Denham, who was transported to hospital. Ms. Denham remained in critical condition until she succumbed to her injuries on March 1, 2019.
IHIT has taken conduct of the investigation and is working closely with its partners from the Chilliwack RCMP, the Integrated Forensic Identification Services and the B.C. Coroners Service to gather evidence.
Investigators believe this was not a random incident and there are no indications so far to link this shooting to any gang conflict.
IHIT detectives are working with the Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Unit to identify and interview key witnesses to determine a motive behind Christine Denham’s murder, says Corporal Frank Jang of IHIT. Anyone who knew what Ms. Denham was doing or who she was meeting with on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 is urged to contact IHIT immediately.
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.
Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
