Victoria, BC – The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit (VIIMCU) continues the investigation into the homicide of Bree Gamble, also known as Bree Lozano, nearly one year ago.

Shortly after 6 a.m. on Wednesday March 3, 2021, VicPD Patrol officers were called to the south side of Beacon Hill Park, along Dallas Road, for a report of an unresponsive woman. Officers attended, along with BC Emergency Health Services paramedics, and despite providing CPR to Bree Gamble, she was confirmed to be deceased. The BC Coroners Service attended and assisted with the investigation. VIIMCU assumed conduct of the investigation after it was confirmed to be a homicide.

Investigators have spoken with several people in relation to this investigation. However, we believe there are additional people with information who have yet to come forward and speak with police.

At this time investigators do not believe there is a wider risk to public safety. Investigators continue to assess the risk to the public as the investigation continues.

If you have information about the death of Bree Gamble please call the VIIMCU Information Line at (250) 380-6211.
