Police have released the identity of a woman found dead in a 3 Street Naramata address yesterday.

The woman has been identified as 57-year-old Kathleen Richardson.

“We are releasing Kathleen’s name in order to help further the ongoing investigation,” RCMP spokesperson Dawn Roberts said in a press release issued this afternoon, June 11.

Roberts said police are interested in speaking with anyone who had dealings with Kathleen in the days before her death.

“Understanding her movements or activities will help continue to move this investigation forward,” Roberts said.

Police are also looking for dash camera video from anyone driving in the Naramata area on Monday, June 6 through Wednesday, June 9.

Investigators believe Kathleen’s death is related to a double homicide discovered in Naramata last month. All three homicides are likely connected to local drug and gang activities and the additional police resources investigating these investigations are expected to remain in the area.

Anyone with information about Kathleen’s death or the deaths of Erick and Carlos Fryer is asked to contact the RCMP Southeast District Major Crime unit tipline at 1-877-987-8477.
