RCMP investigate death of young Lac La Biche woman

The RCMP is investigating a death of a young woman in Lac La Biche.

“We’re not at a point now at this stage if we’re willing to say that it’s suspicious or not,” Media Relations Officer Cpl. Troy Savinkoff told Lakeland Connect on Monday at 2:30 p.m. “We are waiting for the autopsy on Tuesday. So with the autopsy being on Tuesday, apparently it’s in the afternoon. I would expect that we would have a release out if it’s deemed as suspicious on Wednesday.”

Over the weekend, a candlelight vigil was organized along the shores of Lac La Biche lake on Sunday to remember the young girl.

A resident of Lac La Biche told Lakeland Connect that there was a heavy police presence at a lakeside home on Churchill Drive on Saturday evening near the vigil site and this is where Tytiana Janvier, 21, was found dead.

The RCMP said they are actively working on the investigation.

“We have obviously questioned lots of different people to take witness statements, but nobody has been arrested or detained with reference to this investigation,” Cpl. Savinkoff said.

Further details will be released later this week.

Lakeland Connect would like to send its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Tytiana during this difficult time.

Another vigil is being held tomorrow evening in Bonesville at 6:00 p.m. for anyone who wishes to attend.
