No arrests have been made in the case

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – The Vancouver Police Department has identified the woman who was found dead in an apartment in the West End last week.

The body of 34-year-old Marline Mars was found in the apartment near Jervis and Harwood Streets. Police were called just after 4 p.m. Friday.

Constable Jason Doucette says a person of interest has been identified in this case.

“We do believe the suspect and the victim did know each other,” he says. “This was not a domestic situation, and we do not have any reason to believe the public are at risk.”

Two other people were in the apartment when investigators arrived; they were not hurt and both are considered witnesses.

No arrests have been made and no further details have been released.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
