“No other details about her identity can be provided at this time,” stated Sergeant Judith Bertrand, adding that the investigation is still unfolding.

“There is nothing at this time to suggest an increased risk to public safety.”

Anyone with information surrounding the incident is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP or Crime Stoppers to remain anonymous.


(UPDATE: June 21 @ 10:10 am) - A brief Kelowna RCMP media availability didn't offer up much additional information on the discovery of a body in Waterfront Park this morning.

Police said the woman was found dead on the shore of Okanagan Lake in the popular downtown park around 7 am.

"The Kelowna RCMP and the BC Coroner Service are working together to identify the female and to determine the cause of death," said Sgt. Laura Pollock.

The RCMP said no further information would be released at this time, as it is an active investigation, but updates will be provided when available.
