The deceased woman found Wednesday morning in Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford has been identified as a 36-year-old Mission resident.

Police have not released her name, and Const. Ian MacDonald said the cause of death will not be released until an autopsy is completed in the next few days.

The woman's body was discovered at about 6 a.m. by a person walking their dog in a forested area of the park at Emerson Street and Bevan Avenue.

A large area of the park was taped off by police, and investigators were on the scene for most of the day.

Members of the Abbotsford Police Department's patrol division, major crime unit and forensic identification section have been involved in the investigation.

The regional Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has not been involved.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or text abbypd (222973).
