Homicide police will share an update Tuesday morning in the Bhavkiran Dhesi murder case.

Cpl. Frank Jang with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is expected to speak at 10 a.m. at IHIT headquarters.

No further details have been released.

Last week, homicide police shared a “significant update” in Dhesi’s killing, announcing second-degree murder charges had been approved against Harjot Singh Deo, 21.

Deo and Dhesi were dating at the time of her death, and Deo was considered a “person of interest” early in the 19-year-old’s August 2017 murder.

Deo was arrested May 10 at Vancouver International Airport and remains in custody pending a May 27 court appearance.

Dhesi was last seen by her family around 9 a.m. on Aug. 1, 2017 leaving home. Just hours later, an SUV she was driving was found on fire in South Surrey. Emergency crews found Dhesi’s body inside the wreckage of the vehicle.

Months later, police have been tight-lipped, speaking publicly only to seek help identifying the owners of two other vehicles — a dark grey Audie Q7 and a dark grey Dodge Ram — they believed were linked to Dhesi’s murder.

Investigators had said Dhesi’s death was not random and that it was not gang-related.

More to come.
