In August 1997, the body of 17-year-old Carle McConnell, was located in the 1600 block of Devine Road. Carle’s death was ruled a homicide. This case has remained active for nearly 26 years and detectives from the Vancouver Police Department Major Crimes Unit have maintained connection with Carle’s family, who remain committed to seeking justice for Carle.
