OTTAWA, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Following release of information from the RCMP that a woman's body has been found in a wooded area in Duncan BC, Assembly of First Nations, National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo issued the following statement this evening:

      "We are shocked and saddened by this news, and we extend our thoughts and prayers to the family of Tyeshia and the entire Cowichan community including Chief Lydia Hwitsum. I was in the community only yesterday and the love, support and strength of the people was palpable.
      Now, we can only hope that strength will help them in some small way in this difficult, tragic time. On behalf of all First Nations we offer our sincere, deepest condolences. The circle is broken. We hope everyone respects the need for the family and community to come together in their own way on their own time. Our prayers are with you."
