As of 10:00 a.m. Friday morning, a helicopter was patrolling the area, as well as an A.T.V. and officers walking the area. "We don't have a lot of information at this time but we are patrolling the area to find more information about the victim and the circumstances of her death," said Sgt. Mélanie Dumaresq, from the SQ.
"The file is being treated as a suspicious death at this time," said Sgt. Dumaresq, "We have to do more work on the ground to know what happened."
Investigators are still on scene and have not yet released how long the body had been there. Anyone who may have seen something or has information is asked to call 1-800-659-4264. As her body was found quite a distance away from her home, both locals and individuals in Lasalle will be interviewed by police. There will also be an autopsy report.
"It is very sad and scary, but we hope the investigation goes well and we figure out what happened," said Sgt. Dumaresq.
Stay tuned for more information.
