We are releasing Kathleen’s name in order to help further the ongoing investigation, says BC RCMP spokesperson Dawn Roberts. Investigators want to speak to 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.

In addition, police are also asking for any dash cam video from anyone who was driving in the Naramata area on Sunday June 6th through Wednesday June 9th.

Investigators continue to believe Kathleen’s death is related to the double homicide which occurred last month. All are likely connected to local drug and gang activities and the additional police resources supporting the investigations will remain in the area.

Anyone who has any 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.
