One year later, Edmonton police still looking for break in homicide case

Edmonton, Alberta – Homicide detectives continue to search for the killer(s) of a couple shot to death in their southwest Edmonton home last year.

The bullet-riddled bodies of Irfan Ahmed Qureshi, 37, and Suzanne Marie Tran, 27, of Edmonton, were discovered in the bedroom of a home near 49 Avenue and 213 Street back on March 23, 2016.

The Medical Examiner confirmed the couple died from multiple gun-shot wounds – Edmonton’s 7th and 8th homicides of 2016.

One year later, the two families continue to try and cope with the tragic loss of their beloved family members.

“I miss Irfan every day. It’s been one year and I will have no peace in my heart until justice is meted out. I look at his photo daily and talk to him. I finally dreamt of him a few weeks ago and he showed me his wounds – where he got shot. I just want justice for my son and Suzy (Irfan’s girlfriend). Suzy also has a daughter! We need justice,” said Nazima Qureshi, Irfan’s mother.

Homicide Det. Alan Elliott says investigators need the public’s assistance with this investigation, and is hopeful the release of surveillance video (see attached video), which includes a suspect vehicle near the homicide scene, will help.

“There are two families without loved ones that continue to live with this nightmare of not knowing who killed their son and daughter,” said Det. Elliott. “We’re hoping with the public’s assistance, someone out there will come forward and help investigators find some answers for these grieving families.”

Police are urging anyone with information regarding this double homicide to contact the Edmonton Police Service at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at
