Langley: Nicholas Hannon went missing from the Langley area in February 2014. Langley RCMP conducted an investigation and, once it was suspected that Nicholas was the victim of foul play, IHIT took conduct.
IHIT's Cold Case Team moved forward with a lengthy and intense investigation which ultimately yielded sufficient evidence for charge approval against three male suspects.
In September 2015, Brad Flaherty, Keith Tankard and Connor Campbell were charged with first degree murder.
Today, January 23, 2017, all three accused attended Supreme Court in Vancouver and entered their guilty pleas to second degree murder. A joint submission was made and parole eligibility was set for 18 years.
"There is no way to describe how the act of homicide changes the lives of those involved and, while the family of Nicholas are thankful for today's sentence, they recognize that it won't bring him back.
When it comes to holding those accountable for these devastating crimes, IHIT will continue to use extreme persistence when following and retrieving the necessary evidence," says S/Sgt. Jennifer Pound.
