B.C. police watchdog investigates woman's death in fiery vehicle

BY , Feb 12, 2020 11:36 PM - REPORT AN ERRORLAST UPDATED ON Apr 24, 2020 3:32 PM

RCMP have notified British Columbia's independent police watchdog about the death of a woman in a burning vehicle a day after she was arrested and released.

Police say the woman was taken into custody at her home in North Vancouver on Tuesday after she allegedly threatened someone she knew.

Mounties say in a release that the woman was to appear in court on a future date but the following day officers in Squamish, B.C., responded to a report about a vehicle engulfed in flames.

The woman who'd been arrested the day earlier was found dead at the scene.

The Independent Investigations Office will be conducting an investigation to determine if the actions or inactions of police are linked to the woman's death.
