On December 27, 2020 at 11:20 p.m., the Sunshine Coast RCMP responded to a residence in the 500-block of Sargent Road in Gibsons, B.C. and discovered the body of Moirin Webster inside the home with injuries consistent with homicide. Kevin Webster was arrested at scene and taken into police custody. 

IHIT was called in to take conduct of the investigation and has been working closely with the Sunshine Coast RCMP and the other I-Teams to gather evidence. 

On December 28, 2020, Kevin Webster was charged with second-degree murder and he remains in custody. His next court appearance is January 6, 2021

This was a tragic isolated incident involving members of the same household, says Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT. There are no further concerns for the safety of the community resulting from this incident. 

On behalf of the Sunshine Coast RCMP, we send our deepest condolences to the family, says Staff Sergeant Poppy Hallam, Detachment Commander of the Sunshine Coast RCMP. This is a terrible tragedy and our hearts are heavy.
