SURREY, B.C. — A man has been charged with murder in the death of 13-year-old Marrisa Shen, whose body was found in a Metro Vancouver park in July 2017.

RCMP Supt. Donna Richardson, who is in charge of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said 28-year-old Ibrahim Ali is accused of first-degree murder.

Richardson said the suspect is a Burnaby resident and wasn’t known to police.

Shen’s body was found in a wooded area of Central Park in Burnaby just hours after she had left home at 6 p.m. on July 18, 2017.

Richardson said Ali came to the attention of police two weeks ago, but she would not elaborate.
