Surrey RCMP is investigating after a woman was found dead inside a Newton home on Sunday morning.

Police say they were called to a residence in the 13600-block of 60th Avenue on July 7 and upon arrival, found the woman’s body.

Surrey RCMP have since launched a “sudden death” investigation and so far, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has not been called in.
