Vancouver Police continue to investigate the murder of two people and the abduction of a third from a home on Dieppe Place in East Vancouver.

Shortly before 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 17th, police were called to a home on Dieppe Place near Dieppe Drive. Upon entering the house, the VPD Emergency Response Team located a man and woman who were pronounced dead at the scene. Officers also found a four-year-old child who was unharmed, but hiding from the violence that had occurred in the home.

Evidence gathered by police showed that along with the two murders, a man had also been kidnapped from the home. Police believed the murders and abduction were targeted incidents.

Yesterday afternoon, across multiple municipalities in the Lower Mainland, police rescued the kidnap victim and took several people into custody.

The two deceased victims have been identified as 24-year-old Xuan Vanvy Bacao and 29-year-old Samantha Le.

Police have recommended several charges against three men in their 20s. They remain in custody as police continue to investigate and search for additional suspects.

Anyone with information about these murders is asked to call the Vancouver Police Homicide Unit at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
