The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is leading an investigation into the deaths of several people, including one in a Langley home May 7.
â€œThis investigation is extremely complex involving two crime scenes and potentially multiple victims. At this time, IHIT believes that this incident is not random and the suspect and victims were related to each other,â€ said IHITâ€™s Sgt. Stephanie Ashton.
Just after 3 p.m. on Thursday, the Langley RCMP received information through social media that indicated an Agassiz man had harmed his family members.
Popkum resident Randy Janzen posted a disturbing piece on Facebook about how he killed his university-age daughter, his wife and his sister.
The Langley RCMP went to a residence and found a body.
Further information received through social media indicated there was a potential second location of concern in the small community of Popkum.
The Upper Fraser Valley Regional RCMP went to a home and with help from the Emergency Response Team, tried to make contact with a man believed to be inside.
About four hours after they arrived, the home caught fire and was quickly engulfed in flames.
IHIT is still trying to confirm the identies of the victims and would not say how many people in total have been found dead.
The Chilliwack Times has published the Facebook posting of a man from that address that details his plans and actions. (See below)
IHIT and assisting agencies will be at the crime scene throughout the day Friday and into Saturday to gather evidence and help us to determine what lead up to this tragic event.
Anyone with any information on this is asked to contact the IHIT tipline at 1-877-551-4448.
Randy Janzenâ€™s disturbing online confession is printed in full, without edits, here:
Over the last 10 days I have done some of the worst things I could have ever imagined a person doing.First to do with my dear,sweet loving daughter Emily.The best little girl two parents could ever hope for.She was talented and smart and filled out hearts with her laughter.She was always willing to help with a smile even when she was feeling lousy.Emily excelled at so many things but slowly had to stop almost everything because of the migraines.(But when it effected her beloved singing it took a part of her soul).She has been very ill with migraines that have plagued her since Elementary School.This has caused her to miss two years at UBC which completely broke her heart.I donâ€™t think anyone really knew how much pain Emily was in on a daily basis and the severe depression that these migraines caused her.Emily watched her friends from high school move on with their lives while hers was spent wrenching into a puke tray and hours at the Emergency Rm.Since Oct/Nov her migraines have escalated to excruciating again and I just could not see my little girl hurt for one more second.She had shown unimaginable strength through a lot of migraine pain over the years and always seemed try and look on the bright side and always loved talking about things â€œWhen I get better lets do this and letâ€™s do thatâ€.I wish sweetheart.Emily had tried everything to get better but nothing seemed to help her. I took a gun and shot her in the head and now she is migraine free and floating in the clouds on a sunny afternoon,her long beautiful brown hair flowing in the breeze,a true angel.Then I shot Laurel because a mother should never have hear the news her baby has died.Then a couple of days later my sister Shelly because I did not want her to have to live with this shame I have caused all alone.Now my family is pain free and in heaven.I have great remorse for my actions and feel like the dirt that I am.I am taking full responsibility for my actions of these murders.So sorry to anyone I have hurt.Rest in peace my little family Love Daddio xoxo
