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.
