THE Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has taken conduct of the investigation into the suspicious death of a woman in Surrey.

Surrey RCMP Serious Crimes Unit will continue to work closely with IHIT as the investigation continues.

Police are continuing to gather information and evidence and say that investigators have not found any indication of an ongoing risk to public safety related to this incident.  

At approximately 5:30 a.m. on June 17, Surrey RCMP received information from a local hospital about a seriously injured woman in her 30’s. Despite medical assistance provided at the hospital, the woman later died. Police said on Wednesday that the cause of the woman’s injuries was unknown, and her death was being treated as suspicious.

Surrey RCMP were conducting an investigation to gather evidence in the area of the 2700-block of 168th Street, as it was reported that the woman may have been in the area on Wednesday morning, or on Tuesday.

Investigators were working to determine how the woman became injured and were looking into the woman’s movements prior to sustaining her injuries. Anyone with information was asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or, if they wished to make an anonymous report, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.
