BC RCMP seek leads, suspect in nearly 30-year-old triple murder case

The BC RCMP are appealing for information on a nearly 30-year-old cold case involving the murder of three young adults in Northern BC.

Kevin Louis Vermette is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant and is “believed” to be responsible for the triple murder of three young adults in Kitimat on July 12, 1997.

A news release from the RCMP says Vermette’s appearance is expected to have changed “significantly” over the past 27 years.

  • Brown Hair

  • Blue eyes

  • 161 lbs (73 kg)

The news release says Vermette has tattoos of a cat on his upper right arm with “Lucky” inscribed below and a coyote and moon and a dagger through a red rose on his left arm.

Police say he was known to wear glasses.

“Any information as to his whereabouts is being requested by the RCMP to aid in the ongoing investigation,” the release says.
