A suspicious death in a Prince George neighbourhood early Saturday morning has prompted a police investigation.
At about 4:45 a.m. Saturday, Prince George RCMP were called to a residence in the 1100 block of PG Pulpmill Road after receiving a report of a disturbance and front line officers found one person dead at the scene.
“There is one deceased at this time and the investigation is still ongoing,” said Prince George RCMP spokesperson Cst. Jennifer Cooper. “Frontline members who were working last night got a call to a disturbance at that residence but no information was given as to the nature of that disturbance. We’re just not releasing any details yet.”
The RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit and Forensic Identification Services were deployed to the investigation.
“This appears to be an isolated incident and the public is not at risk,” said Cooper.
