    Police in Burnaby, B.C., are warning parents and asking the public to be vigilant after the body of 13-year-old Marissa Shen was found early Wednesday in the brush of a popular park.
    Shen, who would have started high school in the fall, was last seen at her home near the park at 1 p.m. PT Tuesday and last heard from over the phone at 5 p.m., but investigators don't know where she was at that time.
    Her family reported her missing after 11:30 p.m. last night, and Shen's body was found in the southeast corner of Burnaby's Central Park at about 1:10 a.m. Wednesday, investigators said.
    The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is describing the teenager's death as suspicious. An autopsy will be conducted to determine cause of death.

    Appeal for witnesses

    Police are also looking for witnesses who may have seen something suspicious in Central Park in the day or night yesterday.
    "We understand there will be many questions," said Foster. "Until we know more and can provide further updates, we ask that the public remain vigilant."
    Anyone with information is asked to contact IHIT at 1-877-551-4448 (IHIT) or by email, or to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8447 (TIPS)

    Although investigators initially said no one had physically seen Shen since 1 p.m. that day &#8211; four hours earlier &#8211; new information reveals that Shen was last confirmed to be seen leaving her home at 6 p.m. that day.
    "That being said, this now narrows down our timeline," Cpl. Meghan Foster of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team told CTV News.
    IHIT is now looking to speak with anyone that was in the area of the crime scene from 6 p.m. onward on Tuesday.

    "Her death is still deemed suspicious and we're waiting for an autopsy to learn whether or not she is truly a victim of homicide," said Cpl. Meghan Foster of the Integrated Homicide Investigations Team on Thursday morning.


    "Currently, we do not have any suspects."


    According to Foster, investigators have narrowed down the timeline around Chen's activities leading up to the discovery of her body. She was last seen leaving her home in the Central Park area at 6 p.m. PT, Tuesday evening.

    The investigation is trying to determine if she died in a different location before her body was moved to the park.


    "We're gathering the evidence to put that theory together and we're relying on people who have information, or who may have seen Ms Shen, to contact us so we can fill in those blanks," said Foster.


    "We've received multiple tips and those will be reviewed and followed up on accordingly."

    So her being at the apartment is not suspicious and LE are releasing the video just to help people remember if they saw her?

    seems kinda obvious the killer was in that apartment building ... or is that too simplified?

    a lot of apartment buildings have cameras in the elevators so might be possible to find out what floor she exited

    I'm sure they're investigating her social media communications

    I used to live near this park growing up. It has a lot of thick greenery, tall trees and bushes, trails... among other things. There are lots of places where you can't be seen. As a youth I could run in here alone and just get lost. It was pretty awesome at the time. It easily gets quiet when you go in deep enough.
    This park is also kind of known to have haunted areas. People hearing voices in certain areas. Never heard it myself.
    As a teenager I know of other teens having secret after hours "meet ups" here. They would drink and hang out.
    These days I heard there are homeless people camping out in some of the areas and just strange people in general.
    Anyway I'm sad that this happened. It's a popular place for everyone to go to. Families have picnics here and lots of people go out for walks here. Many people live around this area.
    RIP Marrisa.
