Family Of New Brunswick Homicide Victim Pleads For Answers


Lillian Morrell

Lillian Morrell

Updated

Moncton, New Brunswick — The family of Lillian Morrell, a 49-year-old woman who was found dead in her Moncton, N.B., home , is asking for anyone with information to come forward near the anniversary of her death.

"Someone has to know something that can give us answers about what happened to Lillian," Morrell's brother, Malcolm Squires, said in a statement. "To anyone out there who has information that could help police, I only have one thing to say – come forward."

Lillian Morrell's body was discovered in her home on Evergreen Drive in Moncton on October 10, 2014, around 9 a.m. The death was not initially deemed suspicious. In the weeks following the death, police received information that led them to determine that the 49-year-old woman was the victim of a homicide

In 2014, two people were arrested as part of the investigation. They were later released, and no charges were ever laid.

Police released three specific timeframes and locations in Moncton from 2014 that are of interest as part of the investigation:

  1. The home of Lillian Morrell, 41 Evergreen Dr. in Moncton, any time on October 9 and 10.
  2. Irving/Circle K, 1930 Mountain Rd., between 10 p.m. on October 9 and 3 a.m. on October 10.
  3. NB Liquor, 1855 Mountain Rd., between 10 and 11 p.m. on October 9.

Malcolm Squires' statement described his late sister as kind-hearted and generous, and someone who would "give the shirt off her back." She was one of 10 children — the only girl — and their father called her his "pride and joy."

Squires said his 88-year-old mother still keeps a picture of Morrell beside her every day. "She forgets sometimes, she'll look at the door and say, 'There is my only daughter.' And I don't have the heart to tell her that Lillian is gone," the statement said.

Anyone with information that could help solve this homicide is asked to contact the New Brunswick RCMP's Major Crime Unit at 506-452-3491. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

I moved there from Sudbury, ON, I now have also lived in Vancouver, BC for 10 years. The talks of bad things in Red Deer is a joke. Vancouver/Lower Mainland obvs has a lot of crime with larger population & favorable weather. Compare Red Deer to Sudbury for a more accurate comparison, and I'll tell you Sudbury is by far worse. Like, by far.
