Bhavkiran (Kiran) Dhesi, a 19-year-old Kwantlen student, was found dead in a burned-out SUV in August 2017. Police will provide an update.
Homicide police will provide an update on Monday morning about “significant developments” in the case of 19-year-old Bhavkiran Dhesi.
Dhesi’s family last saw her around 9 p.m. on Aug. 1, 2017 when she told them she was going out for a couple of hours. Just over three hours later, the SUV she was driving was found on fire in the 18700-block 24th Avenue, in South Surrey. Her body was discovered inside.
Homicide investigators have said her death was not random and is not gang related.
Dhesi, who was called Kiran by her family and friends, was a criminology student at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and had struggled with health issues related to Wegener’s disease, which she was diagnosed with at age 15.
Dhesi received a kidney transplant in February 2017, and spent about two months recovering. According to friends and family, she was looking forward to getting healthy, travelling and living “a normal life.”
More to come.
