Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit investigating death of woman in Langford

The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) is investigating after the discovery of a deceased woman in Langford.

On December 31 2021 just after 12 p.m. the WestShore RCMP were requested to attend a residence on Selwyn Rd in Langford for a check-wellbeing. Front line RCMP members located the body of a deceased woman within a residence. A male has since been taken into custody without incident.

VIIMCU has assumed conduct of the investigation.

The RCMP continues to work with the BC Coroners Service to definitively confirm the ID of the deceased. The RCMP and the BC Coroners Service have no further information for release at this time.
