Police seeking witnesses in Batalia murder

IHIT releases video of pair who may have information important to the case

Police believe these two men may have information important to the Maple Batalia murder. They are not suspects.



Police have released a video of potential witnesses that may have information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the murder of Maple Batalia three months ago.

Batalia was 19 years old when she was shot and killed on Sept. 28 in a parkade near the Surrey campus of Simon Fraser University.

She had been studying late and left for the parkade just before 1 a.m. when she was shot multiple times in what police believe was a targeted attack.

Batalia was an aspiring actress, model, who was planning to go to medical school. Those dreams were cut short three months ago.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has released a video of persons of interest, who are not suspects, but may have information important to the case.

“These persons are not suspects in this crime, but may have information from before, during or after the crime that could possibly assist IHIT investigators.” said Sgt. Jennifer Pound

If you have information you can contact the IHIT tiplines by calling 1-877-551-4448(IHIT) or email ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca

If you wish to remain anonymous please call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or email Solvecrime.ca
