KELOWNA – A woman found dead in her Glenmore home last week has been identified.

Police found the body of Jacqueline Elizabeth Abaku, 31, in her home in Glenview Gardens around 3:45 p.m. March 31. Police spent most of the day questioning neighbours, but have not released her cause of death.

According to a high school friend, Jake, as she was called, graduated from Okanagan Mission Secondary in 2001. She has two children, ages four and six.

“I kind of lost contact with her since high school but we’ve been Facebook friends ever since,” the friend says. “She was a show jumper and always into horses. She was just really nice and sweet.

"All of her Facebook posts were about how much she loved her kids so it's just really sad,” according to the victim's friend, who has requested her identity not be made public.

Cpl. Joe Duncan of the Kelowna RCMP says police continue to work with B.C. Coroners Sevice on the investigation.

The Kelowna RCMP has set up a serious crimes tip line and are asking members of the public who have any information about the incident to call (250) 470-6236.

Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
