There’s been a breakthrough in a three year old murder case in Chilliwack.
Charges of murder and and indignity to a body have been laid in the death of 18-year-old Rachel Pernosky.
The motive hasn’t been released by investigators, but Rachel’s half brother 31-year-old Matthew Joseph Pernosky is charged with second degree murder and indignity to a body.
Police say Rachel’s killer had sexual contact with and disposed of her body.
In a statement, Rachel’s family say they are grateful and relieved that an arrest has been made.
They note, however a young boy will now never know his mother and will one day need answers to questions he should never have to ask.
