Woman's death not a homicide: IHIT
A suspicious death at a Burnaby apartment building Monday night was not a homicide, say the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
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.
On Thursday afternoon, IHIT said in a press release the case was determined not to be a homicide. As a result, IHIT's involvement in the case is over and Burnaby RCMP will continue to look after the investigation.
The woman was a resident of the apartment. On Wednesday, police were not identifying her as they were still trying to notify her next of kin.
