Police investigate after woman found dead and man arrested in Langford – Kelowna Capital News

The Vancouver Island Integrated Serious Crime Unit (VIIMCU) is investigating the discovery of a deceased woman in Langford.

Just after noon on December 31, West Shore RCMP were invited to a residence on Selwyn Road in Langford for a welfare check, according to a press release.

Officers at the scene located the body of a woman in the residence, and a man has since been taken into police custody without incident.

“This is believed to be an isolated incident and investigators do not believe there is a permanent risk to the public as the two knew each other,” said Sgt. Chris Manseau, spokesperson for the RCMP in British Columbia. “Officers will continue to stay at the scene for the next few days as the investigation progresses.”

Police are working with the BC Coroners Service to confirm the identity of the deceased. The RCMP and the BC Coroners Service said they had no further information to release at this time.

Langford County. Lillian Szpak, chair of the protective services committee, said police told her they were investigating a homicide on Saturday morning.

“It’s such a difficult time of year and it’s such a tragedy,” Szpak said. “It is heartbreaking and very hard on the people involved and our thoughts are with them.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the VIIMCU information line at 250-380-6211.
