|The Duhres were spreading across Metro Vancouver in 2010 with their allies, the Dhak group. Dhak kingpin Gurmit Singh Dhak, 32, was shot dead at Metrotown shopping centre in October 2010. Some of the same muscle and drug enforcers who worked for the Red Scorpions/Bacon brothers and UN gang worked for the Duhres. The Duhres involvement in the August 2011 Kelowna casino shooting that killed Abbotsford’s Jonathan Bacon and wounded full-patch Hells Angel Larry Amero and James Riach of the Independent Soldiers gang was a watershed moment in the conflict.|
| Dean Wiwchar’s two accounts in a Vancouver bank had no money when they were opened in February 2012 two weeks after Duhre’s murder, but in April 2012 police found $140,000. Wiwchar is on trial for first-degree murder in the shooting death of John Raposo in Toronto with Robby Alkhalil. Alkhalil also faces a first-degree murder charge in Duhre’s slaying. But Wiwchar has not been charged in Duhre’s murder.|
In an encrypted text message intercepted by police, Wiwchar said he was in the hitman business, was currently under contract and that his fee was $100,000.
