Body Found In Maple Ridge, B.C., Considered Suspicious Death: Homicide Team

The Canadian Press, 13 Jan, 2020

    MAPLE RIDGE, B.C. - Police are investigating what they describe as a suspicious death in Maple Ridge, B.C.

     

    The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says a body was found in a rural area of the city on Saturday.

     

    A statement from the team says it was called when suspicions were raised about the circumstances surrounding the body and the area it was found.

     

    Detective Lara Jansen says the victim remains unidentified.

     

    She says the homicide team is working with Maple Ridge RCMP, forensic experts and the BC Coroners Service to gather more details.

     

    Officers want to speak to anyone who hiked though the area just east of the community of Albion and noticed anything unusual.

     

    "Though the area is rural, investigators believe that it does get used frequently by pedestrians so we are asking anyone who has been in that area to contact IHIT," Jansen says in the statement.
