We are learning more about the connection between a missing woman whose car turned up at Golden Ears Park and a man wanted in connection to his former wife’s murder in a Burnaby Health food store.
Homicide Investigators say 60-year-old Youngku Youn of Pitt Meadows, a suspect in his ex-wife’s homicide, may be on the run with 54-year-old Kyonghee Kim of Surrey who has been missing since last Tuesday.
Youn’s wife, Hee Sook Youn, was found dead in the washroom of Cho Won Foods in the city’s North Road Centre, October 5th.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says it believes Kim is Youn’s girlfriend.
Homicide investigators say an extensive search of Golden Ears Park over the weekend, invovling police dogs and the ERT/Tactical Troop failed to turn the pair up.
Police say they are worried for Kim’s safety and don’t believe she was part of the homicide. They do say she was contacted immediately after the murder took place.
They add they are also concerned for Youn’s safety, amid reports he may be suicidal.
Police say if anyone sees Youn, they should call 9-1-1 and not approach him.
