The victim of an alleged murder on Friday has been identified as 24-year-old Joseph Kellington.
Abbotsford Police were called to a rural property in the 4500 block of Ross Road shortly after 5 p.m.
Police says Kellington’s death appears to be targeted and a result of foul play.
In a written statement, Cpl. Meghan Foster says Kellington was known to police, but evidence does not show a link between his murder and incidents of gang violence seen in the Abbotsford area.
“Investigators are looking to speak with anyone who may have seen Mr. Kellington from January 29 and onwards. Mr. Kellington was known to police, but it is still early in the investigation and police are working to determine the motive for his death.”
Police say Kellington was last seen on Jan. 29 and was reported missing to Mission RCMP on Jan. 31.
Anyone with information is asked to contact IHIT.
