Calgary, Alberta - On the evening of March 19, 2006, Brenda Meyers was closing Madison's Cafe which was located at 3802 Brentwood Road NW.
At approximately 11:35 PM, the Calgary Fire Department received a call of a fire alarm at Madison's Cafe. During the incident, Emergency Services located the body of MEYERS and determined her death to be a homicide.
On the snowy evening of Sunday, March 19th, Meyer's was working the late shift at Madison's. She was closing up the restaurant, as she had done countless times before, but it would not be a normal night for Brenda Meyers. It would never be known as a normal night for anyone who knew her, ever again.
Fire fighters received an alarm around 11:35 pm after a smoke detector trigged an an automated call to the station. Responders raced to Madison's Cafe and Bar to find a small fire had broken out in lower level of the building near the office and storage area. Luckily, the installed sprinkler system had managed to quell the flames and had limited their spread, but as responders continued their search they discovered Brenda's charred body on the basement floor.
What had happened to Brenda? Was it possible this was a horrible accident? The fire team immediately notified Calgary Police so arson and homicide detectives were brought to the scene.
Although investigators initially suspected foul play, it wasn't until ten days later on March 26, that the autopsy confirmed it was murder. Someone had brutally attacked Meyers and left her to die in the same place she had spent so much of her life.
As of 2021, the case remains open and unsolved.
Anyone with information on Meyers death is urged to come forward to police.
