RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says, “The scene was secured by police who obtained a warrant to search the premises to gather evidence in order to advance their investigation. CMP can confirm that this was an isolated incident, where the suspect and the victim were known to each other, and the public was not at any risk,” says O’Donaghey.”
