Police are asking the public to help further their investigation into the homicide of a 24-year-old man from Coquitlam, B.C., who is being described as a talented soccer player.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says the body of Edi Bogere-Nyigwo was found on a vacant forested property on Jan. 11 in Maple Ridge.
Police say he was last seen leaving his Coquitlam home at 7 p.m. on Dec. 27.
Investigators say they're working to determine a motive and want those who knew Bogere-Nyigwo to come forward, adding there's nothing to suggest his killing was linked to a gang conflict.
Sgt. Frank Jang says police don't think his death was random and they believe there are people with important information who have yet to speak with investigators.
Jang also says Bogere-Nyigwo was a talented soccer player and a member of Coquitlam's Sparta SC under-18 team, which won the Canadian National Championship.
