Homicide investigators are making a public appeal for information in the case of a woman who was shot in Chilliwack seven months ago and has now died.

Police say Stanny Carr, 43, was shot in the 9400 block of Woodbine Street on Aug. 9, 2018.

She was taken to hospital, where she remained in critical condition until her death earlier this month.

An obituary published March 6 describes Carr as a mother of two who “loved nature, taking walks, crossword puzzles and elephants.” The obituary thanked “the wonderful nurses that took care of Stanny at Surrey Memorial Hospital as she fought the injury that wounded her.”

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has since taken over the case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact IHIT or Crime Stoppers if they wish to remain anonymous.
