SURREY (NEWS 1130) — The family of Surrey teen Kiran Dhesi wants justice for the murder of their 19-year-old daughter.

Kiran (Bhavkiran) Dhesi was found dead in a burned out SUV last year, but no arrests or charges have been made. Police found her body inside a vehicle on 24 Avenue in Surrey between 184 and 192 Streets on August 2, 2017. She was last seen leaving her family’s home the night before.

Now her family is coming forward asking for the public’s help finding her killer, and asking them to speak to police if they have any information about the events that led up to her death.

Her sister Anjali Dhesi gave a statement on behalf of the family on Wednesday.

“Since her murder, we have been struggling with the reality that we can never see her sweet face again. Our broken hearts will never heal, and we have no answers as to why this has happened to her,” she said. “My sister had the brightest smile and the purest heart of anyone I’ve ever met.”

She had also just received a successful kidney transplant six months before her death.

“Kiran made her family whole and our lives meaningful. We remember her not only as a daughter, but as a survivor,” her sister said.

Homicide investigators are also sharing surveillance video showing two vehicles that could be related to the incident in hopes it can spark people’s memory about what happened.

Police are asking the public to contact them at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca, or call Crime Stoppers to leave an anonymous tip: 1-800-222-8477.
