Police looking for public assistance in solving the death of B.C. hockey mom

SURREY, B.C. - Police say they'll set up a command post at the same arena in Surrey, B.C., where a 53-year-old hockey mom was fatally attacked.
The command post will be parked at the Newton Arena Thursday and Friday, and police say officers will also canvass the local community looking for tips into the death of Julie Paskall.
Police say on Saturday auxiliary RCMP officers will put up posters around the community, asking for the public's help.
Paskall was attacked Sunday night as she waited for her son outside the rink, and police suspect she was the victim of a random robbery.
Her death in hospital was announced on Tuesday by police who say they have reviewed surveillance tape and believe the attack is similar to another in the same area on Dec. 16.
Harry Bains who represents the riding of Surrey-Newton in the B.C. legislature says he and two other provincial politicians have met with the city's top police officer to discuss the death.
