The month of August won’t go down in the history books as the quietest one in Kitsilano.
First, a man attacking police officers gets shot by the police in the far South-East corner of Kits.
Then, three young men are violently robbed of their iPods.
And now the police have started a murder investigation after finding the body of a woman in the parking lot of the large apartment building at the bottom of Burrard Bridge. Yikes.
UPDATE: The woman killed in Kitsilano was 33-year-old Nicole Parisien of Vancouver. According to a Supreme Court judgment, Parisien was murdered by then 25-year-old Andrew Evans who confessed to becoming angry after being unable to get an erection and beat Parisien before strangling her and hiding her body in the bushes. Evans was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years but he was released early after seven years behind bars. He moved back to Calgary upon his release in 2014.
