Sudden death Kelowna upgraded to homicide
Kelowna RCMP have upgraded a suspicious death to a homicide investigation after a woman was found Tuesday in the Glenmore district of the Central Okanagan City.
The discovery happened midnight when police were called to assist paramedics at a home in the 300 block of Yates Road.
At that time it was determined the death of Theresa Ashley Neville, 27 was suspicious.
What is extremely troubling to police is Neville’s two children, aged eight and 10, were found, but unharmed, inside the home. The children have since been sent to live with extended family.
Friday, police said they would like to speak to a person of interest seen in the area the night of her death.
That person is described as a darker-skinned man with long, shoulder-length black hair, slim features, a narrow face, and high cheekbones.
The man was last seen wearing all-black clothing.
