West Shore RCMP received a report of a deceased teenage girl found in a Langford residence on Aug. 8

West Shore RCMP and B.C. Coroners Service were called to a Langford residence Thursday afternoon after the sudden death of a teenager.

Const. Nancy Saggar, media relations officer for the West Shore RCMP, confirmed officers received a report of a deceased teenage girl at a residence and investigators attended the scene along with the coroner.
