Police mark new year in Surrey, B.C., with a new homicide investigation

January 01, 2014 - 12:10 PM

SURREY, B.C. - Police are investigating what is being termed a "suspicious death" in Surrey, B.C.

Media reports say a woman fell from a highrise in the city's north end Wednesday and that one person is in custody.

But police have yet to comment on the incident other than to say they are investigating.

The city recorded two dozen homicides in 2013, breaking a record and forcing the mayor to launch a task force to solve the problem.

On Tuesday, 53-year-old hockey mom Julie Paskall died from injuries she sustained during a Sunday night attack outside a hockey arena.

Police suspect she was the victim of a random robbery as she waited for her referee son to finish officiating a minor hockey game.
