The sudden death of a woman discovered in Beacon Hill Park last week has been deemed a homicide by VicPD.

Shortly after 6 a.m. last Wednesday, March 3rd VicPD were called to the park for reports of an unresponsive person.

VicPD officers along with paramedics performed CPR on the woman, but she was confirmed deceased at the scene.

VicPD confirmed her death as a homicide one week later.

VicPD reports that the homicide is not connected to the fatal vehicle fire in Beacon Hill Park just one day later, on March 4th, where a 60-year-old man was found deceased.

That death also remains under investigation and foul play has yet to be ruled out.

Investigators are asking anyone who was in the following areas between the hours of 11 p.m. on Tuesday March 2nd, and 5 a.m. on Wednesday March 3rd to please call the VIIMCU Information Line at (250) 380-6211:

  • Lower Cook Street near Beacon Hill Park
  • Lower Douglas Street near Beacon Hill Park
  • Dallas Road between Douglas Street and St Charles Street
  • The area of Fort Street and Foul Bay Road

Investigators are particularly interested in dashcam footage from either location. A map of the areas in which investigators are looking for information is below.
