Investigators seeking information on two vehicles believed to be involved in Kiran Dhesi murder
Homicide investigators have identified two vehicles they believe were involved in the 2017 murder of Bhavkiran (Kiran) Dhesi, the 19-year-old Kwantlen Polytechnic University student whose body was found in a burnt-out SUV.
Cpl. Frank Jang of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said Wednesday that police are looking for the owners of a dark grey Audi Q7 and a dark grey Dodge Ram truck they believe are linked to her murder.
“IHIT continues to actively investigate Bhavkiran’s murder,” IHIT said in a statement. “Investigators would like to speak with anyone with information about these two vehicles.”
Dhesi’s body was found inside a burnt-out vehicle in Surrey on the morning of Aug. 2, 2017, after first responders were called to the 18700-block 24th Avenue to put out a car fire.
At the time, police said Dhesi, 19, had last been seen leaving her family home the night before. Her death is not considered random or related to gang activity and police said she was not known them.
On Wednesday, her family issued a public plea for anyone with information to step forward.
“Since her murder, we’ve been struggling to accept the fact that we can never see her sweet face again,” said Anjali Dhesi, Bhavkiran’s sister, in a written statement provided to media.
“Our broken hearts will never heal, and we have answers as to why this happened to her.
“If you have any information regarding Kiran’s death, no matter how small or irrelevant you think it is, I’m pleading to you as someone who has lost their sister and friend to please come forward.”
