“It’s no secret that police officers are often faced with horrific crime scenes, but one local retired officer has seen more than one can imagine.

Brian Honeybourn, a retired Vancouver police sergeant, investigated war crimes 20 years ago and will be sharing his stories of war at the Langley library on Nov. 15.

Some of his experiences include interviewing a young girl after she got shot in the face, digging up mass gravesites, and identifying war victims.

Honeybourn, who lives on the Langley-Surrey border, worked with the Vancouver police for 33 years and was one of the founding members of the B.C. Unsolved Homicide Unit.

In 1999, Honeybourn travelled to the Kosovo region to investigate war crimes that occurred in the area during the Kosovo War.” (Langley Times)
