Police have charged a man in the death of Teri-Lyn Williams, whose body was found in North Surrey last year.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) announced Thursday a charge of second-degree murder has been approved against Dustin Lee LaLonde.

Lalonde is currently serving a four-year sentence for robbery and aggravated assault committed Aug. 17, 2010 in Kelowna.

Teri-Lyn’s body was found in a grassy area near 13641 104 A Avenue on June 9, 2010 at 6:30 a.m.

“This case is at this point because of the assistance received from the community and because of the dedicated work of investigators for the last 15 months,” said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen, media relations officer for the Lower Mainland District Police Service.

Teri-Lyn, an olive-skinned woman from Calgary was 41, and sometimes called herself Toni.

A friend described her to The Leader two years ago as a “beautiful, sweet, charming girl.”

She was a superbly fit amateur bodybuilder and a hard worker who ran her own one-woman cleaning company.

Still, she experienced emotional ups and downs.

When she turned 40, Teri-Lyn started to fall apart and away from her business, drifting into debt and back into drug use and street prostitution, according to another friend.

The friends tried to help, but “it wasn’t enough.”
