“She [was] a loving mother and a light-hearted practical joker and the best friend anyone could ask for,” Bradley’s friend Condesa Strain told Global News.

Police and the BC Coroners Service are now trying to develop a timeline of Bradley’s actions before her death.

“At this point in the investigation, although Caitlin’s death has not yet been officially classified, our investigators do not believe criminality was involved,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey in a media release.
