The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has taken over investigation into the death this week of a woman in her 30s.
Surrey RCMP announced the development Thursday (June 18) afternoon, in connection with the June 17 death of a woman who had been brought to Peace Arch Hospital with what were described as significant injuries.
Police were contacted by the hospital at around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday (June 17), and have been in the 2700-block of 168 Street since that morning, with the road blocked to traffic between 26 and 28 Avenues for the duration of the investigation.
Police said Wednesday that the cause of the woman’s injuries was unknown, and that her death was being treated as suspicious and that investigators with Surrey RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit were working to trace her movements prior to the time she sustained the injuries.
There is no evidence of an ongoing public-safety risk related to the incident, a news release notes.
