19-year-old found dead in Surrey tent after aging out of government care


There’s been another death of a B.C. teen who recently aged out of government care.

B.C.’s Children and Youth representative Bernard Richard says the 19-year-old girl was found dead in a tent yesterday, in a wooded area of Surrey popular with homeless campers.

“These are circumstances that are troubling for any British Columbian I’m sure. It’s hard not to be shocked and outraged by this kind of senseless death of a young person, and particularly when it involves children who have been in care.”
