Latest Oceanside News

Investigators with the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) are looking for a motorist who may have provided two people a ride the night three bodies were found in rural Qualicum Beach.

Police believe the two flagged down a light coloured sedan on Highway 19 near the scene.

Police said they are also hoping to speak with anyone who was in the area the night of Oct. 31/Nov. 1 and may have Go Pro or helmet cam footage. The gravel pit on Melrose Road is a popular area for quadders, dirt bikers and 4×4 enthusiasts, according to Cpl. Chris Manseau.

VIIMCU is done collecting physical evidence from the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call the VIIMCU information line at 250-380-6211.

Three bodies were discovered Sunday after a motorcycle rider came across an unresponsive man and called emergency services. Police found two bodies in a burned-out trailer and a man in another trailer who was taken to hospital with bullet wounds.
