The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) has announced that it will provide an update Saturday (Sept. 10) on an arrest and charges in a 2017 murder involving an Abbotsford woman.
The update, expected in the afternoon, involves the death of Chelsey Gauthier, who was 22.
Gauthier was reported missing in July 2017, after having last been seen at the McDonald’s restaurant at Bourquin Crescent West and South Fraser Way in Abbotsford.
Her body was found Aug. 16 of that year in an isolated area of Mission near Sylvester Road and Dale Road. IHIT reported that her death was “consistent with homicide.”
Gauthier was the mom of two daughters, who were ages 3 and 2 when she was killed.
Her cause of death has not been released, but police have said they believed her killing was “not random.”
