3 more suspects sought in Vancouver kidnapping and double murder
Police say 3 suspects have already been charged and are in custody
Police are seeking three additional suspects in the case of a kidnapping and double murder in East Vancouver.
Canada-wide arrest warrants have been issued for Ellwood Thomas Bradbury, 26, Matthew Scott Stewart, 33, and Erlan Lizandro Acosta, 26.
The three men are wanted for kidnapping and aggravated assault.
Const. Brian Montague said the men are likely aware that police are looking for them, and they should be considered dangerous.
Montague said police have not yet determined a motive for the murders or the kidnapping.
"[This is still] a very early and active investigation," Montague said. "To determine a motive right now is a bit speculative."
2 killed, 1 kidnapped, 3 already arrested
The kidnapping the men are wanted in connection with happened Sept. 17, 2016. Police have not released the name of the person who was kidnapped.
Officers learned of the kidnapping after discovering the bodies of Xuan Vanvy Bacao, 24, and Samantha Le, 29, at a house on Dieppe Place, in East Vancouver.
The kidnapping victim was rescued by police two days later, on Sept. 19. Police also arrested three men in connection with the incident at that time.
Police are asking anyone with information on the newly named suspects to contact the Vancouver Police Department's major crimes section, or Crime Stoppers if they wish to remain anonymous.
