Mental health patient a suspect in Camrose homicide
Camrose police continue to investigate the death of a 41-year-old woman who was found dead in a residence Sunday morning. A mental health patient is now the lone suspect in the crime.
Originally, the death of 41-year-old mental health worker Valerie Diane Wolski was believed to be suspicious. But police later confirmed her death to be a homicide.
Police were called to a residence in Camrose Sunday morning on a report of a sudden death.
Investigators are not saying much about the investigation, only that a male suspect is in custody. CTV News was told he is developmentally-delayed and police say if charges are laid, it could be sometime next week.
The suspect lived on his own with caregivers who came into the residence around the clock. Three officers are now dedicated to this case full-time. They are currently gathering statements and looking into the suspect's history.
"We want to make sure we have done a proper job that we are not having tunnel vision, that we are looking t all possibilities," said Insp. Len Forman with the Camrose Police Service.
A location and cause of death have not been released.
There were no signs of trauma on the body of the victim.
