VANCOUVER - CTV News has learned Vancouver police have obtained surveillance video showing a Burnaby woman in the moments leading up to a horrific incident that saw her dragged under a vehicle for several blocks, crushing her face and breaking bones in the process.
Twenty-four-year-old Desiree Evancio was crossing the street at East Hastings and Jackson Avenue early in the morning on Saturday, Oct. 12 when she was somehow caught up between a van with Illinois plates; police said at the time the driver didnt realize she was there until he came to a stop blocks away.
Theres no conclusions being made at this time, said Sgt. Aaron Roed. We can confirm there is evidence which indicates the victim walked between the van and the cargo trailer as it was stopped in traffic.
Witnesses whod been outside the SBC Restaurant on East Hastings that night told CTV News they were startled to see a body underneath a commercial van with a trailer that pulled up to the venue soon after a live show had finished; they say the victim was at the rear of the van near the trailer.
