VANCOUBER, B.C. - Vancouver police say arrests have been made in two unrelated cases of bodies that were found at opposite ends of the city.

Police say the body of a man was found on the property of a West End mansion shortly before 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

Twelve hours later, police discovered the body of a 61-year-old woman in an apartment in the city's east side.

Police say that a 48-year-old man is in custody in relation to the West End case, and investigators will work with the coroner to confirm the victim's identity and cause of death.

A man was also arrested in the death of the woman, and police say the suspect was found in the apartment with the victim.

Police say they will provide more details about the east Vancouver case after charges are approved.
