Suspicious death on Osprey Lake Road, Princeton

Princeton RCMP and BC Coroners Service investigating death of Princeton resident

The Princeton RCMP are currently investigating the death of a 56 yr old Princeton woman.   The Penticton Regional General Investigation Section and the Southeast District Major Crimes Unit are assisting.

On November 9, 2011, members of Princeton RCMP Detachment attended a residence on Osprey Lake Road, in the rural Princeton area in order to conduct a well being check of the 56 yr old female resident.

Upon attendance, RCMP officers found the woman deceased inside after gaining entry to the secure residence.  The investigative findings to date, lead investigators to believe that her death is suspicious.  A Forensic Autopsy is scheduled for Monday November 14, with the results of which may assist investigators in making further determinations.

“At this time we can state that there are no indications that the woman’s death poses a risk to the safety of the general public and community of Princeton” stated Cpl Dan Moskaluk.
