The Telegram (St. John’s) - - LOCAL - BY ROSIE MULLALEY rosie.mul­lal­ley@thetele­gram.com

Po­lice are keep­ing tight-lipped while they con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate the sus­pi­cious death of a 45-year-old woman in St. John’s.

On Wed­nes­day at about 10:40 p.m., po­lice and paramedics were called to a unit at Mead­ow­land Manor apart­ment buld­ing at 107 Bay Bulls Rd. af­ter a re­port of a sud­den death.

The woman was pro­nounced de­ceased when paramedics got there.

RNC spokesman, Const. Ge­off Hig­don, said in­ves­ti­ga­tors with the ma­jor crime unit are still look­ing into the cause of the death and can’t say whether or not it was a homi­cide.

“A lot of work still has to be done to make a de­ter­mi­na­tion,” Hig­don told The Tele­gram.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are work­ing with the of­fice of the chief med­i­cal ex­am­iner to de­ter­mine the cause of death.

Po­lice se­cured the area in which the death oc­curred pend­ing the med­i­cal ex­am­iner’s re­port. In­ves­ti­ga­tors have been in the area through­out the day can­vass­ing and speak­ing with neigh­bours. RNC of­fi­cers re­mained at the scene un­til Fri­day af­ter­noon.

“You never know what goes on around here, hon­est to God,” one woman, who lives near the build­ing and was walk­ing past it told The Tele­gram Fri­day.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call the RNC at 729-8000 or Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). In­for­ma­tion can also be pro­vided anony­mously on the NL Crime Stop­pers Web­site at www.nl­crimestop­pers.com.
