The victim of a suspicious death in Victoria last week has been identified as 34-year-old Shaun Alexander McGregor of Victoria.

The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit was called into investigate after it was determined that the man’s death was suspicious.

An autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause of death.

Investigators are also seeking the public’s assistance in locating Chelse Burns, a person of interest, who may have information that could further the ongoing investigation.
