KELOWNA – RCMP say they have received several new leads into the unsolved murder of a murdered mother of two in Kelowna.

The body of Theresa Ashley Neville, 27, was found by paramedics at 397 Yates Rd. shortly after midnight on June 18, 2013. An autopsy revealed Neville was murdered.

Last week the RCMP admitted they had exhausted all leads and pleaded with the public for information about what happened that night, and today, June 22, RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Joe Duncan says the public had come through.

“I spoke with the head investigator and she’s received a number of really good tips,” he says. One of them was a solid tip, which "could lead to an arrest.”

Duncan would not elaborate on the nature of the tip or where it came from, but said the investigator was “optimistic”.

Last year Kelowna RCMP issued a similar appeal for information and released a composite sketch of a man seen in the area of the murder in 2013.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP Const. Meyers at 250-470-6326. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
