The suspicious death of a 100 Mile House woman, Vesna Dumstrey-Soos, who attended school in Penticton as a teen, is now being called a homicide.

Following an intense five-hour search on Jan. 6, the RCMP North District Major Crime Unit – with the assistance of the North District Emergency Response team, Air Services and local RCMP members – took a 46-year-old 100 Mile man, who was likely a person of interest at the onset of the suspicious death investigation, into custody around 2:18 p.m.

The investigation started when 100 Mile House RCMP received a call around 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 4 and were asked to check on the welfare of an employee of a local business who uncharacteristically didn’t show up for work.

When RCMP checked the home in the 6000 block of Norman Road, they found Dumstrey-Soos.

The death was treated as suspicious at the time and the North District Major Crime Unit along with forensic experts were at the home on Jan. 5 to investigate and process the scene.

On Jan. 7, RCMP North District media relations officer, Dave Tyreman, said the suspect and Dumstrey-Soos were known to each other but he didn’t know what how they were connected.

More information may be provided at a later time if formal charges are laid against the suspect, he added.

At this writing, the suspect has not made a court appearance.
