BC RCMP North District Major Crime Unit (ND MCU) have deployed to Chetwynd after a woman was located deceased in a residence.

On February 27, 2023, the Chetwynd RCMP responded to a report of a possibly deceased female in a residence in the East Pine area of Chetwynd.

Chetwynd RCMP front line officers attended immediately and located the body of a 57 year old woman inside the residence. ND MCU has taken conduct of the investigation and continue to work closely in partnership with the Chetwynd RCMP, the RCMP Forensic Identification Service and the BC Coroners Service.

Investigators believe this to be an isolated incident, as a suspect was taken into custody without incident, states Sergeant Chris Manseau, Media Relations Officer for the BC RCMP. Investigators are working closely with partners to determine the motive in this incident, and at this time there is nothing to indicate any threat to the public.

ND MCU is asking anyone with information regarding the investigation to contact the Chetwynd RCMP Detachment at 250-778-9221.

The effects of this tragedy are being felt by the entire community, says Sgt. Wahnese Antonioni-Stevens, Chetwynd RCMP Detachment Commander. We are working closely with our partners at School District 59 to alleviate any concerns the public may have.

Anyone in need of assistance is encouraged to call the Chetwynd RCMP’s Victim Services.
