Suspicious death in Fort Nelson


By the Canadian Press

RCMP in the northeastern B.C. community of Fort Nelson are investigating what they call the “suspicious death” of a 22-year-old female.

Sergeant Lorne Wood says police were called to a home at the Fort Nelson First Nation Saturday afternoon to assist with a woman in distress.

But Wood says by the time police and paramedics arrived on the scene, they found the deceased body of Janeil Berreault.

Evidence at the scene has led investigators to believe the death was suspicious, though Mounties haven’t clarified what that evidence is.

Wood says a man has been taken into custody but has not yet been charged and police aren’t saying what relationship he might have to the victim.
