Unsolved Files in Province of Alberta

Leanne Lori Benwell Leanne Lori Benwell

Body discovered near Wataskiwin
UCF #104200039
Location: Edmonton, Alberta
File: Unsolved Murder of Leanne Benwell
Status: CLOSED
Contributor: Brian J.
Leanne Benwell, 27, was reported missing in April 2007 after her mother, Connie, hadn't spoken to her for over a month. The Salt River First Nation woman's body was found in a remote area in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, on June 21, 2007.

Edmonton RCMP closed the case five years later, after a medical examiner determined her death was not criminal in nature, according to her mother, who strongly rejects that conclusion. "My daughter wouldn't just go and lay down in some farmer's field and die like that. That's stupid" she said, adding that she believes her daughter met with foul play.

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.

UCF #104200060
Location: Calgary, Alberta
File: Found By Hikers
Contributor: Simon V.
Banff Jane Doe was estimated to be between the ages of 24 and 25 when she died approximately a year prior to being found by hikers on April 8th, 1979. She was found in Banff National Park about 300 meters off of the Trans-Canada highway. It's possible that Jane is another victim of the Highway of Tears.

Jane is thought to have been between 5'2 and 5'3 tall. She had prominent, high cheek bones and perfect teeth in her upper jaw (her lower jaw was never recovered). Her hair was thick, long, and either brown or black in color. She also is thought to be Indigenous.

There is little information available in her case and Jane remains unidentified. If you have any information regarding the death or identity of the Banff Jane Doe, you are encouraged to contact the Medical Examiner in charge of her case at 780-427-4987.

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.
