The Integrated Homicide Team has arrested a Surrey man in connection to a 2021 fatal stabbing in Whistler.

On June 22, 2022, with help from E Division Major Crime’s integrated surveillance team and support from the Richmond RCMP, IHIT investigators arrested 22-year-old Dedaar Jhooty.

IHIT noted it was further helped by Surrey RCMP after the arrest.

Jhooty, who just turned 22 this month, has been charged with manslaughter for his involvement in the stabbing of 26-year-old Henry Garcia Molina.

Molina died in the early morning hours of August 14, 2021 at the Whistler Medical Clinic from stab wounds.

“Henry Garcia Molina’s death was a shock to his family and the Whistler community,” said Sgt. David Lee of IHIT, “we hope that this arrest provides some closure and solace to his family.”
