RCMP say a 48-year-old woman was found dead in a home in Kelowna, B.C., early Saturday morning. Const. Jesse O’Donaghey said officers attended to a 911 call at 1:45 a.m. on Cawston Avenue near Richter Street when they found the deceased woman inside.
Police say the circumstances are unclear but they’re treating the death as suspicious.
“A 53-year-old Kelowna man has been detained for investigation and remains in police custody,” O’Donaghey said.
“RCMP have reason to believe that this was an isolated incident and the public is not at risk.”
The RCMP’s serious crime unit has taken over the investigation, and police are working closely with the B.C. Coroners Service.
