Donald Lyle Salahub wanted in connection to Surrey homicide

Homicide investigators are looking for a 44-year old man who disappeared from a halfway house just days before a body was found inside an SUV in Surrey.

Police say Donald Lyle Salahub is considered a person of interest in the death of Michael Amy whose body was found in a vehicle in the 9500-block of 139 Street on Feb. 27.

Investigators said at the time the death was considered suspicious and was not a random attack.

Salahub has a criminal history across western Canada, and is originally from Manitoba. Investigators say he's also had run-ins with police in the B.C. interior.

Salahub is described as 5’11”, over 200 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes.

Sgt. Stephanie Ashton with the Integrated Homicide Investigative Team said if anyone has any information, they should call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448) or email
