Police say there’s no reason to believe there’s an increased risk to the public in the wake of a young woman’s body being found.

On Friday, RCMP held a press conference to address the discovery of a young woman’s body on the shores of Waterfront Park, near Okanagan Lake, at around 7 a.m. the same day.

Very little information was offered at that time and the latest update still doesn’t indicate much.
