Investigators from the Burnaby RCMP and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team are looking into a suspicious death at a Burnaby apartment on Irving Street.

Police were called to the three-storey walkup apartment, just west of Royal Oak, at around 6 p.m. They found a woman with serious injuries. She later died. IHIT was notified of a potential homicide a short time later.

"At this early stage of the investigation IHIT is working closely with members of the Burnaby RCMP to determine if this case is a homicide," said Sgt. Bari Emam of IHIT. "At the present time our investigators are reviewing the initial details surrounding the incident and are in the process of gathering more information."
