Homicide team at Surrey home ‘as part of already ongoing investigation’

Police tape up at a Surrey home within a block of a Nov. 11 murder scene

Homicide investigators were spotted at a home in Surrey Tuesday night, within a block of a murder scene that left one man dead on Nov. 11.

A Black Press freelancer said the Investigated Homicide Investigation Team had police tape up around the home on the evening of Nov. 19, in the 12300-block of Old Yale Road.

IHIT says its officers were in the area “as part of an already ongoing investigation.”

The home is located within a block of the Remembrance Day incident that left 30-year-old Andrew Baldwin dead, which IHIT is investigating.

Surrey RCMP first responded to the Nov. 11 scene in the 10700-block of 124th Street just before 5 p.m. after a report of a “call for assistance from a home.”

Police say Baldwin was found unresponsive at the scene with critical injuries. He was pronounced dead at hospital.

The Integrated Police Dog Services was brought in to conduct a search for the suspect, who police say was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants with reflective material around the bottom of the pant leg. He was last seen northbound on 124th Street from the scene.

Three weeks earlier, on Oct. 22, Andrew Baldwin’s 27-year-old brother Keith Matthew Baldwin was shot in downtown Chilliwack. He died later in hospital.

There is so far no information to suggest the brothers’ killings were connected. Keith Baldwin’s murder was described as targeted, but the same has not yet been said about Andrew Baldwin’s.
