Foul Bay Road has reopened after a home was investigated in relation to the Beacon Hill Park homicide on Wednesday morning.
The body of Bree Sara Gamble (also known as Brianna Lozano) was discovered on March 3rd on Dallas Road, near the south side of Beacon Hill Park.
Police were called to the park shortly after 6 a.m. that day for reports of an unresponsive person.
VicPD officers along with paramedics performed CPR on the woman, but she was confirmed deceased at the scene. Her death was ruled a homicide one week later.
In a media release today, VicPD says VIIMCU investigators — along with Oak Bay Police, Saanich Police, and the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team — “conducted additional investigative steps” this morning in the area of Fort Street and Foul Bay Road.
Photos sent to Victoria Buzz show a man being escorted away from a home on Foul Bay Road in handcuffs.
“Investigators continue to assess the risk to public safety. Investigators do not believe that the general public is at risk,” said VicPD in a media release.
Traffic was briefly disrupted in the area but is now clear. Police say the investigation remains ongoing.
Investigators with the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime unit are retracing her last moments and encouraging anyone with information to come forward.
They are particularly interested in dashcam footage from several locations:
- 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
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 are asked to call the VIIMCU information line at (250) 380-6211.
