Integrated Homicide Investigation Team Sgt. Bari Emam says Mounties were called to a suite in the complex in central Burnaby Monday evening for a report of an injured woman.
The victim died a short time later and Emam says that's when IHIT members were summoned.
He says the team is working closely with Burnaby RCMP to determine if the case is a homicide and more information could be available later.
Name of the woman, her age and cause of death have not been released.
In an unrelated case, Surrey Mounties responded to Green Timbers Urban Forest Monday night when human remains were found, and police say there are few details about the discovery and the bones appear to have been there for a long time.
