Burnaby RCMP and the BC Coroners Service continue to look into the circumstances surrounding the tragic death of an 8-year old girl over the weekend.
On November 4, 2017, at approximately 2 p.m., Burnaby RCMP attended an apartment building in the 3700-block of Bartlett Court after receiving reports that a girl had fallen from an apartment. Upon police attendance it was confirmed the girl had succumbed to injuries sustained in the fall.
Investigators do not believe that the death is suspicious in nature and instead is a tragic incident in which the girl fell from a window.
Burnaby RCMP’s victim services continue to provide support to the deceased girl’s family members who have asked for privacy at this time.
