Three years after 19-year-old Delores (Deedee) Brown went missing and her body was later found off nearby Norway Island, police continue to seek the public’s assistance.
Brown was last seen in the early hours of July 27th, 2015, by a group of friends at a beach on the northeast side of Penelakut Island, near Chemainus.
She never returned home that night and was reported missing to police two days later.
On Aug. 19, her body was discovered near Norway Island by a group of kayakers.
The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit believes Brown was the victim of foul play and began investigating her death as a homicide.
“What may seem like small and inconsequential information, may be the missing link in this investigative puzzle. Everything is important,” Cpl John Place said in a statement.
For the last three years, investigators have followed up on leads and forensically analyzed evidence to try and determine who is responsible for Brown’s death.
Anyone with information is asked to contact VIIMCU at 250-380-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
