The Niagara Regional Police homicide unit has taken over a case where a woman died following an incident in a Welland home last week.
Emergency crews were called to a home on Garner Avenue December 6th at 6:30 a.m. A 29 year old woman was found with serious injuries and transported to a local hospital. She was later air-lifted to a trauma centre with life threatening injuries. On Monday December 9th, she died of her injuries.
Neighbours in the area told CHCH that there was some sort of a domestic dispute that lead up to the incident.
Police have not made any arrests but say there is no threat to public safety.
The victims sister described her as a feisty, happy woman. “[She] Never hesitated to help you if she could. We could laugh together for hours. She was loved by so many people. You really couldn’t help but love her,” she wrote.
