SURREY, B.C. - Homicide detectives in Metro Vancouver are appealing for information as they investigate the murder of a 41-year-old woman who died in hospital on June 17.

A statement from the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says little is known about Bo Fan, who was dropped off at a Surrey hospital with life-threatening injuries and died a short time later.

Sgt. Frank Jang says police do not believe her murder was random.

He says investigators have determined she was a citizen of China, had links to a group known as either Golden Touch or Create Abundance, and had been living in Surrey since February 2019.

She was last seen in an area of well-groomed homes in central Surrey in the hours before she arrived at hospital.

Jang says there is still much to learn about Fan and her history and he urges anyone with information about her to contact the homicide team.
