Leanne Lori Benwell

A woman whose remains were found in a rural area south of Edmonton last month has been identified as a sex-trade worker reported missing last spring.

Police say Leanne Lori Benwell, 27, was last seen March 12 after visiting her mother in Edmonton and was reported missing in April.

Her body was found near Wetaskiwin, Alta., on June 21. Police said at the time it was believed her remains had been there for at least six weeks.

An RCMP task force that is looking into the disappearances or deaths of almost 80 people, many of them women in the sex trade, is helping with the investigation, Corporal Wayne Oakes said.

A cause of death for Ms. Benwell has not been released, although the case is being treated as a homicide.
