Homicide in Penticton

UPDATE 4:15 p.m.

Residents of a “nice, quiet neighbourhood” in Penticton, which was the site of the region's third homicide were awoken early Monday morning by police banging on their doors, asking questions.

A neighbour told Castanet News 1154 Woodlands Drive has been occupied by a man and women for “quite some time now,” but none of the neighbours knew much about the couple, because they kept to themselves.

“They would squabble a bit,” said another resident of the street. “But nothing serious.”

It was the first time police had been called to the home in recent memory, they said.

RCMP have remained tight-lipped about the incident, only confirming they are investigating “an apparent” homicide with a male victim.

ORIGINAL 11:00 a.m.
