Kelowna RCMP have decided to identify the woman found dead last weekend in Rutland to advance its investigation into her suspicious death.

On Sept. 19, just after 7 a.m., Kelowna RCMP were called to the intersection of Highway 33 West and Nickel Road. When officers arrived, they found the body of a deceased woman whose death is believed to be suspicious. The deceased has been identified as 41-year-old Krystal Moyan of Kelowna, according to the RCMP's latest press release.

RCMP and the B.C. Coroners Service continue to investigate the circumstances which surround Krystal Moyan’s death, as police work to establish a timeline.

“Retracing Krystal’s movements leading up to her death is one of the priorities for our investigators and we urge anyone who may be able to assist us with this to contact us immediately,” said Const. Solana Paré of the Kelowna RCMP, in the release.

“In particular, we are looking to speak with anyone who saw or spoke with Krystal on the evening of Saturday, Sept. 18, and the morning of Sunday, Sept. 19. We are also appealing to the public for dash camera footage from anyone who may have been traveling on Highway 33 near Nickel Road on Sept. 19 between midnight to 7 a.m.”

Moyan is described as an Indigenous woman, 5'5" tall with a medium build, short black hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen wearing a black and grey winter jacket, a red T-shirt, dark sweatpants and black Nike shoes with a white sole and white logo.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or by leaving a tip online.
