Nanaimo RCMP are investigating the death of a 35-year-old woman.

Police and paramedics were called to an apartment on Wakesiah Avenue shortly before 5:30 p.m. Thursday after a family member discovered the woman’s body in a bedroom of the apartment.

The B.C. Coroners Service was called and is assisting Mounties with the investigation.

“Given her relative young age and with no apparent cause of death, our Serious Crime Unit is handling the investigation,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, in a press release Friday.

“A forensic autopsy will be completed in the next couple of days, which will hopefully assist in determining the cause of death.”

The woman’s name was not released pending notification of other family members.
