A small memorial has been erected near the site where 22-year-old Corey Huu Le was found deceased Sunday in Williams Lake.

The body of Le, who was also known as Corey Porter, was located by the Williams Lake RCMP after they were called to a disturbance in the 1,000 Block of Eleventh Avenue North around 3:45 a.m. May 18.

At the site a photograph of Le and a small child, flowers, candles and a quote from Abraham Lincoln, have been placed outside yellow police tape.

Other than confirming they are investigating the death as a homicide, the RCMP remain tight-lipped about the incident.

“Unless an arrest is made or something major happens we will not be releasing any more information” said Cpl. Dave Tyreman, North District Major Crime Unit media relations.

RCMP continue to keep vigilant watch at the scene, with an officer posted at the home around the clock.

The North District Major Crime Unit and a forensic team are assisting the Williams Lake RCMP with the investigation.
