UPDATE BY RCMP
10:30pm Sunday, October 9, 2011,
A male has been apprehended and is in custody for an incident that occured on Turney Street where a male and female were seriously injured in an incident in the early morning hours of October 9, 2011.
Thi is an ongoing investigation and further information will be released at a later time.
The RCMP are asking anyone with information regarding suspicious activity the have heard of or observed between the hours of 2:00 am and 7:00 am on October 9th to contact the Kitimat RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800 TIPS (8477).
Although we have no confirmation as of yet, it appears there has been another act of violence, a stabbing, in the good community of Kitimat.
From all the reports we have received, a husband and wife were involved and possibly a third party. The woman was an employee at the Scotia Bank in Kitimat. Again, unconfirmed, reports indicated she was transported to Vancouver for treatment and the husband is recovering from his injuries.

Just recieved an e-mail that the woman died of her injuries, and the husband is in critical condition. It was a violent home invasion, and the man (name witheld) is an active community member, well known.
God help him and his family, and may her soul rest in peace.

My prayers and thoughts go out to the victims, families and friends in this absolutely heinous crime. I pray they both make full recoveries, and the sicko that created this nightmare for them and the community of Kitimat spends alot of time behind bars.

If there is anything, I mean anything you guys need please call me. I am so so sorry. My heart is aching for you all, hold each other tight. Stay strong.
Why the secrecy?
Comment by Bill Vollrath on 9th October 2011
Why are the names of the victims witheld? It is not disrespectful to say someone's name if they've been the victim of a crime! And why don't the police release information pertaining to the identity and status of the attacker? Is there a madman running around free out there in Kitimat? I remain in prayer.
Appreciate the update on the suspect. Thanks.
To the Family

I don't think that you are using your words wisely...the term "was" may have just started rumors of this poor woman's demise...I would suggest revising that statement...just a thought
Prayers for this family
