It’s been nearly a year since the body of Luke Durling was found inside a Keremeos, B.C., home, and still his family says they have many unanswered questions surrounding Durling’s cause of death.
On Feb. 20, 2022, RCMP were called to a home in the 100-block of 9th Avenue around 11 p.m. for reports of an unresponsive man.
The Southeast District Major Crime Unit was called in to investigate what police said was a homicide.
“Initial belief of investigators is that this was an isolated and targeted incident — likely between people who were known to each other. We don’t believe there is any risk to the general public,” said BC RCMP Staff Sgt. Janelle Shoihet in the initial RCMP press release.
“Evidence at the scene led investigators to believe that his death may have been criminally linked. With that in mind, Southeast District Major Crime investigators were called in to assist in the investigation.”
