Former RCMP officer Krista Carle has died.
Friends confirmed the news to Global BC Tuesday morning.
Carle was an outspoken advocate for protection from harassment in the RCMP.
After she left her 19-year career on the force, she fought for accountability and talked about her own experiences.
She said she suffered dozens of instances of harassment and sexual assault, which left her with crippling PTSD.
It is not yet confirmed how or when Carle passed away.
RCMP said in a statement:
“We were deeply sadden to hear of the recent passing of our retired RCMP member Krista Carle. Our thoughts are with her family, friends and colleagues.”
