The Peace arch News reported that RCMP are looking for witnesses after a 24-year-old Surrey man died of stab wounds Friday night at Richmond General Hospital. Francis Le was found in the hospital parking lot just after 11:30 p.m. He was being treated when Richmond police arrived, but succumbed to his injuries. Other media outlets referred to him as a Surrey drug dealer.
Kim Bolan reported that "Last April, Le was sentenced to 10 months in jail in Surrey Provincial Court for possession for the purpose of trafficking and one day in jail for extortion with a firearm.
His arrest was announced by Surrey RCMP in March 2015, after a 21-month investigation that also netted Sophon Sek."
