Murder of homeless man touched a nerve with public, Vancouver police say

VANCOUVER, B.C. - Vancouver police say the killing of a wheelchair-bound, homeless man has touched a nerve with the public.

VANCOUVER, B.C. - Vancouver police say the killing of a wheelchair-bound, homeless man has touched a nerve with the public.

The city has seen a spike in violence in recent months, from gang killings to the recent murder of a woman killed while jogging through a forested park.

Last Thursday, Michael Ciro Nestoruk was found dead outside a local elementary school.

Police revealed this past weekend that the 41-year-old man only had one leg and was confined to a wheelchair, but little else is known about his background.

Const. Lindsey Houghton says today Vancouver police realize the case has appalled people in the city, and the force intends to keep the public informed as the case progresses.

But so far, investigators have few leads or theories about what happened, and are pleading for anyone with any information to come forward.
