RCMP are investigating the murder of a man who was found dead near Surrey's Delta Golf Course on Monday morning.

Surrey RCMP received a report of a body in a grassy area in the 12300 block of Colebrook Road in south Surrey, said Cpl. Adam MacIntosh. He said this is a rural area north of Highway 99 on the Surrey/Delta border.

Officers quickly determined it was a homicide and turned the probe over to the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

"We are in the early stages of this investigation and we are working to find out if this latest homicide is related to gang activity," said MacIntosh in a news release.
