Her body was discovered by Hope RCMP late last night in 31200 block of Front Street

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is in Yale after a woman was found dead last night on a property at the corner of Front and Yale streets.

Homicide investigators are in Yale today searching for clues in the death of a woman in the 31200 block of Front Street.

Hope RCMP was called to the property at about 11:20 p.m. after receiving a 911 call requesting police check on the well-being of a woman. When officers arrived on scene and discovered the woman’s body outside the home, they quickly called for assistance.

“Our investigators in partnership with members of the UFVRD RCMP and the Lower Mainland`s Forensic Identification Section are in the preliminary stages of conducting a crime scene examination,” said Sgt. Bari Emam of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT). “This is a remote area and we have very few details available at this point. Further information will be communicated to the media once more details emerge in the coming days.”

Police have not confirmed the identity of the woman. IHIT is asking anyone who was in the area, between the early evening hours of Dec. 14 to 11 p.m. on Dec. 15, who may have witnessed or heard anything suspicious to call the IHIT Tipline at 1-877-551-4448 or email ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
