RCMP investigating TRU senior lecturer’s death as homicide

The death of Thompson Rivers University lecturer Mohd Abdullah is now reportedly being treated as a homicide. Abdullah was reported missing on March 14th after failing to report to work at the university, and his body was found on March 17th. TRU states that Abdullah worked at the university for 21 years and played an important role in the Faculty of Science and Open Learning. Several students and colleagues remembered Abdullah as a quiet and kind member of the community. “You work with someone for 21 years, you don’t expect something like that to happen to them,” said TRU instructor Wayne Babinchuk. “I’ve been here for 30 years. I don’t recall anything like this ever happening to a faculty member.” RCMP have not released information about the death or whether a suspect has been identified, reports Global News.
