Police ID man in Maple Ridge murder
Police say a man who was found murdered in his Maple Ridge home on Friday was active in the drug trade.
David Bourgeois, 41, was found inside a house on River Road near Stevens Street around 9:30 a.m. by someone who had come to visit him, according to Ridge Meadows RCMP.
By the time police arrived at the property, which is adjacent to Maple Ridge Elementary School, Bourgeois was already dead.
"The deceased appears to be the victim of foul play," said Sgt. Jenn Pound, with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
"Investigators are currently looking into the details precipitating this murder."
The house where Bourgeois was murdered remained behind yellow tape on Monday, three days after the homicide.
An autopsy has been completed on Bourgeois, however, police are not releasing the cause of death.
Pound said Bourgeois was known to police and appeared to be active in the drug trade.
He was known on the street as “Tigger”.
