Yale murder victim named

Police are searching for a motive in the death of 51-year-old Zenia Moorehouse this week

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has identified the woman who was murdered in Yale earlier this week.

The body of 51-year-old Zenia Moorehouse was found outside her home in the 31200 block of Front Street on Dec. 15.

Moorehouse’s family called Hope RCMP to check on her well-being after they were unable to contact her at home. When officers arrived on scene, they discovered her body and quickly determined she was the victim of a homicide.

There have been no arrests made in connection to this investigation and IHIT is searching for a motive.

Anyone who was in the area, between the early evening hours of Dec. 14 and 11 p.m. on Dec. 15, who may have witnessed or heard anything suspicious is asked to call the the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-4448 or email ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
