Police say they have arrested a family member in connection with the homicide of Whalley resident Jackie Olson late Monday afternoon.
"The Youth Criminal Justice Act prevents us from identifying who the individual is," said Sgt. Jennifer Pound, spokeswoman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team.
A charge has not yet been laid.
"At this point the individual is the only suspect."
Olson, 43, was found unconscious in a four-plex in the 13000-block of 103A Avenue after the Surrey RCMP received a 911 call, just before 5 p.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene, and IHIT was called in.
Police are not saying how Olson died. She is Surrey's 11th homicide victim this year.
Pound said the family member was arrested 12 hours later, in Surrey.
"This individual is currently in custody and IHIT are continuing to sort through the evidence and determine what led up to this tragic crime," she said.
Pound was asked at a press conference Tuesday if police think the homicide was premeditated.
"We're still looking at all that," she replied.
