A 17 year-old female, according to a police report, has lost her life following an incident near Salmo early Sunday morning.

Responding to a 911 call just after 1:00 a.m., Trail RCMP attempted to assist the young woman who was in distress with life-threatening injuries at a home in the Ross Spur area. She was transported by ambulance to hospital in Trail where she was pronounced dead.

The Kootenay Boundary Regional Detachment General Investigative Section and Crime Reduction Unit, along with the Nelson Forensic Investigation Section, are investigating the cause of the female’s death. The investigation is ongoing.

A 28 year-old male at the early Sunday morning scene was taken into police custody on a warrant for an unrelated incident. The male had been due to appear in Nelson Provincial Court on July 22, not Castlegar Provincial Court as indicated previously.
