Police have released more details into a suspicious death near Boston Bar.

Investigators have confirmed it was a woman who was found dead just off Highway 1, about 10 kilometres north of Boston Bar Wednesday evening, according to a statement by the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team Friday.

At 7:45 p.m., RCMP received a report of a suspicious occurrence. Cpl. Frank Jang told reporters in Surrey it’s believed the caller may have been witnessing the killing. When police arrived the body of the woman was found, as well as another man who was arrested at the scene.

That man has since been released, police said.

The woman has not yet been identified, but was in her late 20s, police said.

“The priority for our detectives will be to positively identify the female victim and notify her family of her death,” Jang said.

A white 1994 Chevrolet Astro van was seized near the scene and is believed to be somehow associated to the death.

Cpl. Mike Rail said in a news release Thursday that the death is not believed to have been a random act.
