Residents of a downtown highrise were left with unanswered questions after a woman was found dead inside her suite Thursday morning.
Officers were called to Rossdale House at 9825 – 103 St. around 10 a.m., after the body of a 28-year-old woman was discovered in her apartment by a family member.
Police haven’t identified the woman or released any details surrounding the death, but are treating it as suspicious.
Investigators remained parked outside the building throughout the day.
All residents who spoke with Metro were surprised by the news of the body’s discovery, and said they didn’t know the victim.
Having lived in the building since July, resident Logan Chamut said he hasn’t seen any signs of criminal activity during his tenure.
“It’s not a bad building, really quiet,” he said. “Though I’ve lived downtown for three years and nothing surprises me anymore.”
Rossdale Foods clerk Amol Patil echoed Chamut’s remarks, and said in the few months he’s worked for the building’s ground-level convenience store, he’s felt safe.
“I’ve never seen or heard of anything like this around here before,” he said. “It’s surprising.”
Staff at Midwest Property Management were tight-lipped about the death and declined to comment Thursday afternoon.
An autopsy was scheduled for Friday.
If ruled a homicide, the woman’s death would be the 20th of 2009. There were 22 homicides this time last year.
