Police have identified the woman killed in Vancouver's Stanley Park early Thursday morning as Thi Yen Le.

Le, 33, was found in medical distress by a park caretaker near the Brockton Oval at about 6 a.m. April 24. Despite efforts by emergency responders, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Vancouver Police say Le was targeted and investigators have ruled out the possibility that her body was dumped in the park after being attacked elsewhere.

“This isn’t a case of someone in the park being randomly attacked,” said Const. Brian Montague, noting Le was known to police.

The exact cause of death has not been released and police say no additional information will be provided at this time.
