Joe Verma arrested for the murder of Brittney Irving
We've talked about how Brittney Irving went missing from Kelowna and how her dead body was eventually recovered. We've also talked about how she was last seen with a member of the Independent Soldiers named Joey or Joe Verma. Well today the police announced the name of the person they arrested for Brittney's murder - Joe Verma.
Personally I'm very interested in his association with the Independent Soldiers and with the Kingpin Crew and how this could possibly tie in with Geoff Meisner's disappearance. It has been reported that Geoff's wife Tammy knew Britney. Obviously if Joey had anything thing to do with Geoff's disappearance he didn't act alone. Witnesses claim Joey was close with Dale Habib and has been a long time Hells Angels associate.
Since Brittney was living on a grow op that was busted shortly before her disappearance I am also very interested in the fact that Hells Angels support gear was found on a Kelowna grow op since Juel Stanton was accused of robbing grow ops in Surrey and taking them over for the East Vancouver chapter of the Hells Angels.
I'm also very interested in the Hells Angels connection to the Independent Soldiers since neighbours claim they saw both Hells Angels and Independent Soldiers attend parties at Shane Bunting's house with the previous owner. How did Shane get his start anyways? Somehow I don't think he was selling encyclopedias for the Hells Angels in Vancouver.
One can't but help to wonder how this ties in to the double murder in Kamloops which was tied to the Independent soldiers and the Hells Angels. They say Joey has hung around with Hells Angels for a long time.
