Homicide police are searching for a man suspected of killing his mother in Richmond, B.C., on Tuesday.

Redelma Belisario, 62, was found dead by family members just after 3:30 p.m. in a home in the 11000-block of Woodhead Road, according to Sgt. Stephanie Ashton of the RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.

Ashton said an autopsy is needed to confirm the cause of death but said it appears to be a case of foul play.

She said police are searching for the victim’s 38-year-old son Darwin Lescano, who has not been found and is believed to be a suspect.

“It is the priority of IHIT to locate Mr. Lescano,” Ashton said in a media release. “We are asking that anyone who knows where Mr. Lescano may be or if you see him that you call police immediately, do not approach him.”

Lescano is described is five-foot-six, 141 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and a slim build. He may have a shaved head or close cropped hair.

Anyone with information about Lescano’s whereabouts is asked to call IHIT at 1-877-551-4448 or email ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
