The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is asking for the public’s help to find 60-year-old Youngku Youn of Pitt Meadows, who is the main suspect in the murder of his ex-wife.
Investigators confirm a 59-year-old woman was found dead in the 4500-block of North Road yesterday.
Hee Sool Youn’s body was found in the washroom of a business in a busy strip mall.

Staff Sergeant Jennifer Pound with IHIT says there was a history of violence.
“I can tell you that there is a history of domestic violence within the family. And again, right now our priority is to locate that individual and we’re asking for the public’s assistance.”
Pound says the public should remain vigilant and contact police if they see Youn.
She says there is no reason to believe the public in in danger but asks people not to approach him.
An autopsy will be performed in the next few days.
