The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) is investigating after the discovery of a deceased woman in Langford.
On December 31 2021 just after 12 p.m., the WestShore RCMP were requested to attend a residence on Selwyn Rd in Langford for a check-wellbeing. Front line RCMP members located the body of a deceased woman within a residence.
A male has since been taken into custody without incident.
VIIMCU has assumed the conduct of the investigation.
“This is believed to have been an isolated incident and investigators do not believe that there is an ongoing risk to the public as both individuals knew each other,” said Sergeant Chris Manseau, Media Relations Officer for the BC RCMP. “Officers will continue to remain at the scene for the next few days while the investigation progresses”
The RCMP continues to work with the BC Coroners Service to definitively confirm the ID of the deceased. The RCMP and the BC Coroners Service have no further information for release at this time.
Anyone with information is asked to call the VIIMCU information line at 250-380-6211.
