VICTORIA — An 18-year-old Langford, B.C., teenager has been identified as the homicide victim whose badly burned remains were found along a popular Vancouver Island trail near Victoria.
West Shore RCMP say the body of Kimberly Proctor was found March 19 along the Galloping Goose Trail in Colwood, west of Victoria.
She was identified late Monday night, following an autopsy.
A police release says investigators are working around the clock to identify suspects in the attack and more information is expected within hours.
Proctor was last seen by her family on Thursday morning.
That was more than 24 hours before a young boy spotted her body under a bridge along the 55-kilometre trail stretching across southern Vancouver Island from Victoria to Sidney.
