KELOWNA – A Kelowna mother of two was murdered in her Glenmore home about two years ago and police are once again asking for the public’s help to solve the crime.

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

Neville’s daughters, who RCMP say are 8 and 10 years of age, were found inside the home unharmed. They now live with extended family.

Neville’s landlord Frank Schlief said she lived with her daughters and partner, who he believes worked as a bailiff. He said he heard Neville’s daughters were from a previous relationship and that she was going through a break-up before she moved to Glenmore.

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.

“Despite the time that has passed, police are still actively investigating Theresa's murder and continue to look for information from the public that would assist in identifying the individual or individuals responsible for her death,” Cpl. Joe Duncan says in a media release issued today, June 18.

Duncan says the victim’s children could use help and donations are being accepted at this Go Fund Me website.

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.
