Vancouver Island police are investigating after a woman was found dead in Langford on New Year’s Eve.
The West Shore RCMP says they were called for a health check early Friday morning and discovered the woman’s body.
They say a man has since been remanded in custody in connection with the death, although there is nothing to say about what charges he may face.
Police did not disclose the name of the accused, but say they are working with BC Coroner’s Service to confirm the woman’s identity.
Sergeant Chris Manseau says police believe it was an isolated incident and that there is no sustained risk to the public.
He says the victim and the accused are believed to have known each other and that officers will remain at the scene for the next few days while the investigation continues.
