Man arrested in historic murder investigation out of Kamloops…

A 52 year-old Chasm man has been arrested and formally charged in the death of a Kamloops woman almost two decades later…

On June 19, 2000, a family member reported Angel Fehr missing to the Kamloops RCMP. Angel had last been seen on April 23, 2000, when she had Easter dinner with her family, including her two daughters, in Abbotsford. After dinner, a pregnant Angel left with her boyfriend, Trent Larsen, to drive back to their home in Kamloops. Angel has not been seen since.

Early in the investigation, police determined that it was out of character for Angel not to be in contact with her family, especially her two daughters. When police discovered she had missed a pre-natal appointment and there had been no activity on her banking or cell phone records, investigators suspected criminality was involved in Angel’s disappearance.

This past weekend, at a rural property just outside of 100 Mile House, Angel’s body was located. We would like to extend our thanks to the owner of that property, who is completely un-related to this crime. He not only co-operated with investigators, but also assisted by providing equipment to assist in the recovery of Angel’s body. He has requested not to be contacted and for continued privacy.

Despite 19 years having passed, we have continued to follow up on every tip and investigate every lead. In June 2016, the E Division Major Crime Special Projects Unit assumed conduct of the investigation and employed conventional and non-conventional techniques to advance the file, in the hope that some day we would arrest the person we believe to be responsible for Angel’s death.

That day has finally arrived and we can only hope today’s announcement can bring Angel’s family some sense of relief and one step closer to healing“, states Superintendent Jeanette Theisen, Officer in Charge of the of Programs and Special Projects of the BC RCMP Provincial Major Crimes Section.

On September 15, 2019, Trent Larsen was arrested and has been formally charged by the BC Prosecution Service with one count of second degree murder in relation to Angel’s death.

His next scheduled to appear in a Kamloops Provincial court on September 30, 2019.
