B.C. RCMP are asking the public to come forward with information that can solve the death of a woman in 2015 that may be a homicide.

Monday will mark four years since the body of Delores “Deedee” Brown was found by kayakers on Norway Island.

Police say the 19-year-old was last seen on July 27 partying with friends on Penelakut Island, which sits between Norway Island and the east coast of Vancouver Island.

Investigators suspected foul play was involved in Brown’s death and launched a homicide investigation, but no arrests have been made.

The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) is continuing to follow up on investigative leads, but say it now needs the public’s help.
