The body of 63-year-old Slocan resident Victoria Aguilar was found south of Slocan on Sunday.

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a female who was found deceased near Slocan City on Feb. 15, 2015. She was Victoria Aguilar, aged 63, of Slocan.

Aguilar had been reported missing by family members on Jan. 7, 2015, when they had been unable to make contact with her for several days. A search at the time yielded no results.

On Feb. 15, 2015, a passerby walking near the Slocan River spotted Aguilar in an open area about three kilometres south of Slocan City. She was deceased at the scene.

The BC Coroners Service continues to investigate this death. Foul play has now been ruled out. It is noted that Aguilar liked to go for long walks in the area.
