Carshill Street, a well-manicured neighbourhood with established homes on the skirt of downtown Maple Ridge, was the scene of a possible homicide this week.
Monday morning at about 2:15 a.m. police responded to a 911 call that was placed by someone in the home at 11704 Carshill St.
According to a long-time neighbour, who refused to give her name, the deceased is Henry Braun, a husband to Dianne and father of three.
The dead man lived in the house, that was behind yellow police tape on Tuesday, for more than 20 years.
“Medical personnel performed CPR on the 59-year-old resident of the home, but despite all attempts to revive him the victim was pronounced deceased a short time later,” said Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokesperson for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
“It appears that the victim may have been involved in some sort of domestic incident prior to his death. Investigators are attempting to determine the relevance of this incident and any connections it may have with his death,” Pound added.
Although an autopsy will be required to determine the cause of death, she said investigators are treating this as a homicide investigation.
There have been no arrests made at this point and investigators will be working throughout the day to process the scene and to gather further evidence.
