HOBBEMA, Alta. - The death of a young woman found injured on a reserve south of Edmonton has been ruled a homicide by the medical examiner.

She was rushed to the Wetaskiwin Hospital, but passed away a short time later with an autopsy performed on Friday.

The Mounties say the victim’s name is being withheld for now pending positive identification.

There’s no word on a motive, suspects or arrests in the case as the investigation continues.
