WEST KELOWNA - A 29-year-old Vernon woman has died under suspicious circumstances and police are looking to the public for help.

Just after 7 a.m. today, June 29, West Kelowna RCMP were called to the 1300 block of Ponderosa Road and found Jordyn Kitchener in a home and RCMP General Investigation Section began investigating. They are currently working with the B.C. Coroner's Service to determine the exact cause. 

"Until more details and facts surrounding Miss Kitchener’s death are determined the risk to the public remain unknown," says a release from Cpl. Meghan Foster. “Miss Kitchener was last seen at her home in Vernon at 7 p.m. on June 28th, 2018. Investigators are asking anyone who knew her, or saw her after this time to contact police.”

Police no longer identify victims of potential homicides or homicides, nor do they inform the public when a homicide has occurred unless, as in this case, they believe it will further an investigation. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-2880, or should they wish to remain anonymous to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
