IHIT investigating homicide in Burnaby

A 45-year-old woman dead inside a residence in Burnaby.

Police say they were called to a house in 7900 block of 18 Avenue, just south of Robert Burnaby Park around 1 p.m. for a woman needing medical attention.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was on the scene where that incident occurred on Thursday afternoon.

When they arrived, police say they found a 45-year-old woman dead inside a residence.

A 47-year-old man has been taken into custody. Police say the incident was “not a random act.”

They are not releasing the name of the suspect, the victim or commenting on the nature of their relationships.

IHIT says it will provide more information later Thursday.
