The service included more than 2,000 first responders who marched in the funeral procession and at least 1,500 other first responders who were at the Oval for the funeral service. Const. Shaelyn Yang was killed on Oct. 18 while accompanying a parks employee to speak with a man living in a tent in Burnaby’s Broadview Park. Jongwon Ham has been charged with first-degree murder in her death. Yang was three years into her career with the RCMP and served on the Burnaby detachment’s mental health and homeless outreach team. Every police department whether Provincial or Municipal sent representatives.
