Background: On March 30, 2022, the Coquitlam RCMP and the BC Emergency Health Services (EHS) were called to a sudden death at the 3100-block of Coast Meridian Road, in Port Coquitlam. Inside the private residence, first responders located a 41-year-old deceased man.
The deceased man has been identified as Joo
Daniel Jeon. This incident was not connected to the ongoing Lower Mainland gang conflict, but was determined a homicide.
Homicide investigators searched the private residence, gathered forensic evidence, and interviewed witnesses. A case was then submitted to the BC Prosecution Service (BCPS). On April 5, 2022, BCPS approved a charge of second degree murder against 46-year-old Sharokh Mirzaei Amir Abadi.
As this matter is now before the courts, further updates will be handled by BCPS.
