Three Vanderhoof men are now facing charges for Prince George’s first murder of the year.

Jordan McLeod from Prince George was killed on Upper Fraser Road on Jan.16, 2015, according to the city’s RCMP.

Sebastian Martin was arrested earlier last week on the Saik’uz Reserve south of Vanderhoof, while brothers Darren and Kurtis Sundman have been in police custody since February for other matters, said Cpl. Wade Harvey from the RCMP’s detachment in Vanderhoof.

Harvey noted that while the three were known to the police before, the Sundman brothers have been previously charged for activity in Vanderhoof, Prince George, Quesnel, and even as far south as Merritt.

“This was a very comprehensive investigation that spanned multiple jurisdictions,” said Sgt. Todd Wilson, Serious Crime Unit Commander of Prince George RCMP. “Along with the Detachment General Investigative Services and our Major Crime Unit, we were assisted by RCMP Officers from Vanderhoof, Quesnel, Williams Lake, Merritt, the North District Major Crime Unit, BC Provincial Interview Team, Prince George General Duty Members, and the Prince George Police Dog Service Unit, which spent countless hours in assisting us while we were looking for Jordan.”

On Jan.19, McLeod was reported missing.

Three days later, his body was found by a man dog-walking northwest of the city by Kaykay Forest Service Road and past the end of Nukko Lake Road.
