Homicide investigators identify man found dead in Langley hotel room
Homicide investigators have identified the man found dead in his hotel room as 36-year-old Kevin Brunelle.
Brunelle worked as a cook at the Langley City hotel and lived upstairs in one of the rooms, said the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
Now police are seeking any information or witnesses to a possible assault on Brunelle that led up to his death.
Langley RCMP were called to the hotel in the 20300 block of Fraser Highway, just after 4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 22, 2016, when a man was found deceased in one of the rooms.
Police determined the death was suspicious and as a result called in IHIT. The hotel is above Baselines Pub.
On the afternoon of Thursday, Jan. 21, Brunelle was found in the alley behind the Langley hotel. He was suffering from injuries which he may have sustained during an assault.
Brunelle was assisted back to his room, and was not checked on until the following afternoon when he was found deceased, said IHIT Sgt. Stephanie Ashton.
Investigators are now looking for anyone who may have information about Mr. Brunelle’s actions leading up to the time he was found injured in the alley on Jan. 21.
