Woman found dead in Fleetwood area home

Police are investigating Surrey's latest murder after a woman was found dead in a basement suite Thursday evening.

Police were called to a home near 84 Avenue and 148A Street in the Fleetwood area at about 7 p.m. on Nov. 8 where they found deceased female in her 20s.

Her identity had not been released as of Friday morning.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said they expected investigators to be at the scene for a couple of days, but indicated it does not appear the murder was gang related.

"We are in the very early stages of this investigation and we are working to find out what happened inside the residence.” said IHIT spokesman Cpl. Adam MacIntosh.

Anyone with information is asked to contact IHIT at 1-877-551-4448 or by email at ihittipline@rcmp-grc.gc.ca or leave a tip at solvecrime.ca
