Police investigate woman's suspicious death
A Burnaby woman is dead in a case deemed suspicious by police.
On Monday night, Burnaby RCMP were called to an apartment building in the 5100-block of Irving Street, near Royal Oak Avenue. A woman inside a home was reported to be injured.
She later died of her injuries and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was called in to assist with the investigation.
But as of Wednesday morning, police still had not determined if it was actually a homicide.
IHIT spokesperson Sgt. Bari Emam said investigators are working with Burnaby Mounties and were still awaiting autopsy results Wednesday.
He confirmed that the woman who died was a resident of the apartment. Police are still trying to notify her next of kin and are not yet identifying her.
"The investigators have been talking to people obviously in the complex and from within the residence," Emam said. "That was just part of the initial investigation to determine where these people were, when they were there, how was she discovered, all the initial things that we're not really willing to release yet."
