VANCOUVER — A lack of police warnings after a Surrey woman was found “left for dead” and reportedly chained to a tree earlier this month has a local shelter director outraged.
The 43-year-old homeless woman, known as Janna, was found beaten on Dec. 2.
Police said she received facial injuries and bone fractures, and remains in hospital in critical condition.
“She is a mom … she’s very simple, very uncomplicated,” said Surrey Urban Mission’s Jonquil Hallgate, adding she’s seen the woman in and out of the shelter for several years.
