RCMP homicide investigators are looking for David McKay and Cydnie Arryelle Markel-Rempel after a man was killed at an address on Glenwood Street Wednesday.

UPDATE: Two Chilliwack homicide suspects now in custody

Integrated Homicide Investigation Team called in after assault at home on Glenwood Street

The Mounties got their man and their woman.

The RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) announced Friday afternoon both suspects in the killing of 40-year-old John Robert Oliver Anderson are now in custody.

Just after 2:30 p.m. and IHIT spokesperson said they arrested 21-year-old Cydnie Markel-Rempel, and after 3 p.m. they arrested 37-year-old David “Yoda” McKay.

The couple were wanted since Wednesday at noon when police were called to a house in the 8900-block of Glenwood Drive where Anderson was found in medical distress by police after a call to 911. The 40-year-old was brought to Chilliwack General Hospital (CGH) and pronounced dead just after 1:30 p.m.

Known as “Mikey” to his friends and on the streets, an R.I.P. Mikey Anderson page on Facebook was created just before midnight Wednesday.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) quickly released the name of the victim and asked for the public’s assistance Thursday to locate McKay and Markel-Rempel.

Undercover IHIT officers and marked RCMP vehicles were seen scouring the downtown area all day Friday responding to numerous tips from the public about sightings of the couple.

McKay is well-known to Chilliwack RCMP with an extensive criminal record. Most recently he was arrested and charged alongside Lough Plumridge for stealing a bait car in 2014.

IHIT said Anderson’s death is believed to be targeted.

As many as 10 RCMP forensic investigators scoured inside and outside of the Glenwood Street home in Chilliwack Thursday morning after the incident. By Friday morning they had packed up and were gone.

The property on Glenwood that Mounties had surrounded with police tape backs on to Bernard Elementary School and is a known drug house, according to neighbours.

“They move merchandise in and out,” neighbour Bill Kaminski told the Times Thursday. “There was just way too much coming and going from there. I’ve been keeping an eye on them.”

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact the IHIT info line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca, or contact Crimestoppers via solvecrime.ca or phone at 1-800-222-8477.
