On the first anniversary of her death, the family of a 33-year-old woman who was found murdered in her home near Surrey, B.C., is appealing to the South Asian community to help police find her killer.

The tragic death of Amanpreet Bahia left three young girls without their mother. Two of the women's three daughters were at home at the time of her death.

Police said Bahia was the victim of a brutal, violent attack.

But despite having questioned her husband and other members of her family, police have yet to make any arrests or lay any charges.

Now, on the first anniversary of her death, Bahia's family is asking for help.

"We are thinking maybe somebody out there knows something about this tragedy,'' said Parminder Chohan, the woman's uncle.

Chohan said he wants anyone who knows something to come forward and give the information to police.

Amanpreet lived with her husband Baljinder Singh Bahia and his parents. They worked at a blueberry farm they own in Cloverdale, B.C.

Her husband identified himself as a suspect right after his wife's homicide, but police say he has never been on their official suspect list.
