KELOWNA - Mounties say a composite sketch released early on in a now three-year-old murder investigation is no longer valid.

When Kelowna RCMP updated the investigation into the murder of Theresa Neville in June, some media outlets re-circulated an old composite sketch. A release today says that sketch is old news.

"Investigators have determined, after extensive investigation, that there is no evidence to support that a person fitting this description was in the area on the night of the murder," spokesperson Const. Jesse O'Donaghey said in a release today, July 15.

Just after midnight on June 18, 2013 Kelowna RCMP were called to assist paramedics at a house on the 300 block of Yates Road where they found Neville's body in her own home. 

"The police investigation has steadily progressed over the last three years and police are now confident that this was not a random attack," O'Donaghey said.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cst. Joanne Meyers of the Kelowna RCMP Serious Crime Unit (SCU) at 250-470-6326. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
