Delta Police have launched a new website to help them solve some the municipality’s outstanding cases.

DPD’s criminal investigation branch and corporate communications teamed up to develop dpdunsolved.ca, which went live on March 24, in order to shine a light on some of the department’s outstanding files and perhaps help bring those involved some closure.

“The primary objective is to utilize all available strategies to bring these investigations to a successful conclusion,” said Sharlene Brooks, Delta Police public affairs coordinator, in an email to the Reporter.

“Having these cases and others available in the public domain (through the website) will make them accessible to the general public and may generate tips from those who have not yet come forward through traditional channels.”

To date, three cases have been posted to the site: Sukhwinder Dhaliwal, who was shot to death under the Highway 10 overpass in Delta Watershed Park on March 2, 2009; Regina Brazil, who was murdered in her Ladner home sometime between the evening of March 30 and the morning of March 31, 2010; and Brittany Stalman, who went missing after leaving her family’s North Delta home to go for a walk on Nov. 13, 2006.

Brooks said there are additional files that may be added to the site.
