Police are investigating the death of a senior woman in Enderby, which has been deemed suspicious.
According to Cpl. Madonna Saunderson, B.C.’s Southeast District Major Crime Unit has taken over the investigation after the discovery of a deceased 72-year-old woman.
The North Okanagan Rural RCMP received information about the deceased woman on Sunday, Sept. 25. The woman was inside a residence in Enderby.
Saunderson said investigators believe the death is suspicious.
“The investigation is in its preliminary stages, however, investigators believe that it was an isolated incident and that there is no risk to the public,” Saunderson said.
According to a neighbour in the area, “at least four cop cars” arrived at the Cliffview Lane Modular Home Park on Sunday.
“Yellow tape went up around the whole house after that. An officer and a vehicle have been parked there 24/7.”
The neighbour added that on Tuesday morning, “an investigative team arrived, put on rubber gloves and were carrying the boxes of equipment to the house.”
