Notorious Fraser Valley gangster Curtis Vidal killed in Edmonton

Homicide two years after brother James Vidal also murdered

Former Chilliwack resident and notorious gangster Curtis Vidal was killed this week in Edmonton.

Vidal died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds overnight Tuesday (April 12) at a residence in the southeast part of the city.

More than one local source informed The Progress of Vidal’s death hours after it happened, something that was confirmed by the Edmonton Police Service (EPS) Thursday evening.

Police in Edmonton asked citizens to check for dashcam footage from the area during the period between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on April 12.

It was at approximately 9:13 p.m. on Tuesday when EPS officers responded to a report of an injured male at a residence in that neighbourhood. The 41-year-old was found dead inside a garage at the house.

Curtis Vidal is alleged to have had connections to the Hells Angels in the Lower Mainland. He had been living in Alberta since completing his sentence for a home invasion in Chilliwack in 2013.

Vidal’s brother James was the victim of an unsolved homicide in March 2019 on Alexander Avenue.
