Police say the deaths of two women in Coquitlam, B.C., appear to be a murder-suicide. RCMP say officers responded to a call about a woman in medical distress (in the 1100 block of Eagleridge Drive) Friday evening. The 22-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and police say her injuries suggest foul play.
A female suspect who knew the victim was identified, but left the scene before police arrived.
Officers tracked the suspect’s vehicle to Buntzen Lake on Saturday morning, where police say the suspect’s body was found in the water early Saturday morning.
Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound with the Integrated Homicide Investigations Team says evidence suggests both deaths are part of a murder-suicide, but there is still work to be done on the case.
