Family members are identifying the Whistler homicide victim as 19 year old Luka Gordic of Burnaby.
The Serbian national graduated from Burnaby Central Secondary School.
His cousin, Daniella, says the group was vacationing in Whistler for May long weekend before the violence broke out.
She describes Luka as a popular young man with lots of friends who always made people laugh and smile.
Friend Robbie Wright tweets “Heart goes out to Gordic family and the rest of the Serbian community still feeling loss of one of they’re own.”
RCMP are looking for witnesses to come forward.
