A five-month Vancouver Police investigation has resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly killed a 60-year-old East Vancouver resident last summer in Grandview Park.

Gilles Hebert died in hospital on the evening of August 5, 2021, after being assaulted earlier that day by a man in the park, near Commercial Drive. Homicide investigators identified a suspect and spent months gathering evidence before making an arrest on January 1.

BC Prosecution Service has now approved one count of manslaughter against Jeff Arnie Lincoln.

Lincoln, 39, remains in custody pending a bail hearing on January 4.
