Police say the death was suspicious, but is not considered a random act.

Homicide detectives are investigating the “suspicious” death of a woman in North Surrey on the weekend.

On Friday at 11 p.m., Surrey Mounties were called to a home near 103 Avenue and 127 Street.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) was called in at 1:30 a.m. when it was determined the death was suspicious.

The woman has been identified as 25-year-old Salamawit Girma of Surrey.

“This is not believed to be a random act,” said IHIT Sgt. Stephanie Ashton.  “We have no reason to believe residents in the area are at risk at this time.”
