Is there a connection between fugitive Brandon Teixeira and murdered Surrey man Ryan Provencher?

Is there a connection between a B.C. fugitive who evaded police for more than a year, and the murder of two Surrey men whose bodies were found in the interior?

That’s the question being asked after the alias “Ryan Provencher” appeared on newly-unsealed court documents related to Brandon Teixeira’s extradition back to Canada.

Teixeira, the suspect in a 2017 Surrey murder, was taken into police custody Sunday, after U.S. Marshals tipped off police in Oroville, Calif. that he was hiding out in the area.

Ryan Provencher, 38, and Richard Scurr, 37, were found dead on Aug. 17, 2019 in a rural area north of Spences Bridge. RCMP said circumstances at the scene suggested they died as a result of “criminal behaviour.”
