Vancouver police have identified the city’s ninth homicide victim as 41-year-old Thomus Donaghy.
Donaghy was stabbed on Monday at around 8:30 p.m. near Thurlow and Comox streets.
He was taken to hospital where he died from his injuries.
Donaghy was working at the overdose prevention site connected to St. Paul’s Hospital, when he went outside. He was involved in a fist fight with an unidentified man in the area of Comox and Thurlow before the man stabbed him.
“We believe there may be additional witnesses to the altercation who have not yet called police,” said Vancouver police Sgt. Aaron Roed.
“Any information they can provide could be critical to the investigation.”
Investigators are also looking for dash-cam footage from any drivers in the area of Comox and Thurlow around the time of the murder.
Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call VPD detectives at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
