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.
