Creston resident Katherine McAdam has died in what RCMP suspect was a homicide.

Creston resident Katherine McAdam has died in what police suspect was a homicide. McAdam was the subject of a missing person investigation last week.

“Forensic analysis of suspected human remains have confirmed them as being that of Katherine McAdam,” an RCMP press release said on Tuesday morning.

The 58-year-old McAdam was reported missing from her home to the RCMP on Aug. 18.

On the afternoon of Aug. 27, Creston RCMP members discovered “what they believed to be human remains” while conducting their inquiry at a residence in the 2700 block of Highway 3. The Southeast District major crime unit was contacted and has since taken over the investigation.

“I have been very impressed with the major crimes unit’s efforts to work with our detachment and to keep communication open,” Staff Sgt. Darryl Hammond said on Monday, in only his second week on the job as commander of the Creston detachment.

Anyone with information in regards to McAdam’s death is asked to contact the Creston RCMP Detachment at 250-428-9313 or BC Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
