The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit is assisting Sooke RCMP with an investigation into the death of a woman in East Sooke.

According to an RCMP media release, Sooke RCMP responded to a report of a sudden death a 37-year-old woman in the morning of May 4 at a residence in East Sooke. The VIIMCU was called in to assist with the investigation after an assessment at the scene revealed unexplained circumstances.
