Suspicious death a murder

Kelowna RCMP are in the midst of a murder investigation.

RCMP have now confirmed a woman whose body was discovered in an orchard on Cooper Road Wednesday was the victim of foul play.

Police say the woman is believed to have been between the ages of 25 and 35.

"Once the victim has been positively identified, our priority will be to properly notify the woman's next of kin," said Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey.

"Police do not believe that she was the victim of a random act."

The Kelowna RCMP Serious Crimes Unit has taken over the lead on the investigation.

O'Donaghey says police will continue to work with the BC Coroners Service to confirm the victim's identity and the circumstances surrounding her death.

The cause of death has not been revealed.

Anyone who may have witnessed anything in the area is asked to contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
