THE BC RCMP Southeast District Major Crime Unit (SED MCU) on Tuesday confirmed that it is no longer seeking the public’s assistance to locate Philip Toner.
Toner, previously identified as a person of interest and an individual police were looking to speak with, was located earlier Tuesday morning by the Lake Country RCMP.
“Major crime investigators continue to pursue all avenues of investigation into the suspicious death of Brenda Ware,” said Acting Officer-In-Charge (A/OIC) Superintendent Sanjaya Wijayakoon of the BC RCMP Major Crime Section. “There continues to be no known threat to public safety at this time.”
RCMP continue to urge anybody who has any information about Wares’ death, or can aid investigators in establishing the timeline leading up to her death, to contact the SED Major Crime Unit Information Line at 1-877-987-8477.
