Jordan Reno

A man who was murdered in Prince George on Monday (June 23) has a criminal history mainly based in Mission and Abbotsford.

Jordan Christian Reno, 22, was found dead on a property in the 4100 block of Knight Crescent in Prince George.

An autopsy performed on Thursday (June 26) determined the cause of death, which has not been released, and the matter was deemed a homicide.

Prince George RCMP said they believe this was a targeted incident, but would release no further details.

The provincial court database indicates that Reno has a list of charges and convictions in Abbotsford and Mission from 2008 to 2011, as well as files from Fort St. John in 2009.

He also appeared to have strong social connections in the Fraser Valley. Many of his “friends” listed on his Facebook profile are from Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack.

Reno’s convictions in Mission run from 2008 to 2010 and include theft, break-and-enter, assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, and numerous breaches of his parole and bail conditions.

He was also convicted in January 2011 of a break-and-enter in Abbotsford.

Reno’s other convictions – break-and-enter, resisting arrest and breaching his bail – occurred in Fort St. John in October 2009.

Most recently, Reno was in prison in Prince George, awaiting trial along with four other men in relation to the assault of 24 people at a beach party in the summer of 2010.

Each of the men received 40 charges, including pointing a firearm, assault with a weapon, uttering threats, and assault causing bodily harm. Among the weapons they were accused of using were a handgun, baseball bats and two-by-fours.

Four of the men were acquitted, including Reno, who was released from jail in May. A mistrial was declared for the fifth man.

Anyone with information about Reno or his murder is asked to call the Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
