The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has been called in to probe the homicide of an 18-year-old woman in a Burnaby home.
IHIT says Burnaby RCMP found the teen with life-threatening injuries after receiving a call for assistance at a residence in the 4100-block of Oxford Street on Sunday at 12:36 pm.
Sgt. Frank Jang says the woman has since died of her injuries.
A man was arrested in connection with the death and has since been released from custody pending further investigation. No criminal charges have been laid.
In a release issued to media Tuesday night, Jang said it was an isolated incident involving people “known to one another.”
No further information has been released.
Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551-IHIT (4448), or by email at [email protected]
