The RCMP Major Crimes Unit has confirmed the identity of the two victims involved in the West Kelowna double homicide.

Tiffany June Goruk, 30, and Jeremy Daniel Snow, 33—both from West Kelowna—were found dead inside an SUV Monday night after the vehicle crashed into the side of a Terravita complex building in West Kelowna.

Shortly after investigating, police discovered the deaths were not due to the crash; rather, the victims were murdered.

Snow had a criminal record, including a 2009 arrest for his involvement in a helicopter drug smuggling operation.

Friends of Tiffany Goruk have posted a brief message asking for kind words on the social media site along with a picture of a broken heart.

Over 200 people have been added to the site thus far; comments have been pouring in over the past hour.

Delainie wrote: "So saddened to hear about this tragedy, rest in peace Tiff."

"My heart breaks for your family and your boys, we had some good laughs, you will be missed," commented Rhonda.

A series of pictures of the young woman have also been posted on the page.

Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said investigators are advising the general public that the murders are not believed to be a random act and noted there is not a direct threat to the general public.

Investigators are continuing with their request for public assistance and have set up a designated tip line for information: 1-888-688-4264.
