  • Coquitlam stabbing victim identified as 32 year old female Ramina Shah

RCMP in Coquitlam, B.C., are investigating a fatal stabbing in the city.

They say in a release that the female victim was located Thursday around 4:30 p.m. in an underground parkade in the 1100-block of Austin Avenue.

Police say she was rushed to hospital for treatment of stab wounds but was pronounced dead a short time later.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) was called in to investigate. The female victim has been identified as 32-year-old Ramina Shah from Maple Ridge. Her name and photo are being released in an effort to identify witnesses who may have seen her around the time of the incident.

According to Shah's Instagram page she was a realtor and a mother of 3. Shah's office is in the Austin Ave area of Coquitlam where the stabbing took place.

At this time, this appears to be isolated and not random. “This is in its initial stages and we want to assure that there is no going risk,” said Sergeant David Lee of IHIT, “we are still gathering information and are asking for witnesses and CCTV.”

Detectives are looking to speak with anyone who was in the area on Thursday afternoon and has dash-cam footage that could aid in their investigation.
