The 41-year-old woman whose body was found in a small parking lot at Hi-Knoll Park, near the Surrey-Langley border on Thursday, was known to police.
"We are still looking to locate family so we won't be releasing her name until that's done," Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokeswoman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said Friday morning.
The victim's body was found in the same parking lot where the body of Marc Bontkes was found in March 2009, beside a van.
Bontkes' shooting had been drug related.
This latest case marks Surrey's 20th homicide so far this year.
