    Canada - Winnipeg, Fem, 35-50, in Red River, Jun'12 - Audrey Desjarlais

    Winnipeg police, still seeking to identify a woman whose body was found in the Red River in June, have released a sketch of what they believe she looked like.
    The woman believed to be between 35 and 50 years old, and about five feet and six inches tall with a slim build.
    She may have also worn dentures, police said.

    And how exactly does a woman end up in a black garbage bag due to natural causes? How could an autopsy miss that this was a murder. There is a serial killer who prays on woman in Manitoba, specifically Winnipeg. Here is a link with the killer's (probable) victims.

    Was she IN the garbage bag or was the garbage bag what called attention to her (ie; maybe she was using it as a poncho at some point)?

    A body in a black garbage bag may establish that you improperly disposed of a body, but it doesn't by itself prove you caused the death of the person in the bag.

    In this case, it isn't clear that the bag had anything to do with her -- it might just be a piece of rubbish that snagged on the floating body and attracted attention to it.

    The picture of the UID sure looks like Flett.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    That's a good point, I never thought of that.

    A girl on FB thinks this woman is her mother, Audrey Desjarlais. There are some interesting comments the girl makes.

    Bumping this case in light of 15 year old Tina Fontaine recently found within garbage bag in the Red River.
    Also, there is presently a community initiative to drag the river for other bodies .

    A new article on this case, and Barb Desjarlais is convinced this is her mother, Audrey. The Winnipeg police department aren't so sure and apparently won't take a DNA sample from Barb, who is offering to pay for it herself. The police department are reviewing it but I hope for her sake she gets the test at some point, just to know one way or another. Full article at the link below...

    Missing woman's daughter wants DNA test to see if Winnipeg Jane Doe is a match
    Investigators face budgetary restrictions that prevent more DNA tests from being done

    By Donna Carreiro, CBC News Posted: Apr 22, 2015 9:00 PM CT

    It could take as little as a few hundred dollars and a saliva sample for Barb Desjarlais to find out if the body of a Winnipeg "Jane Doe" is her missing mother, but even the promise of a newly enhanced national DNA database for missing persons might not give her the answers she's looking for.

    "There's no doubt in my mind that that's my mom. Let's just do the test. Just prove it," Desjarlais told CBC News from her Regina home.

    Missing & Murdered: Unsolved cases of indigenous women and girls

    Desjarlais is referring to the unidentified human remains of a woman whose lifeless body was pulled from the Red River in 2012.

    Little is known about this Jane Doe, except this: she was about five feet five inches tall, had long dark hair and was thin. She had dentures and, based on how she was dressed, she was likely homeless or at least transient.

    But she also wore jewelry; specifically, a necklace with a dolphin on it, just like the one Barb Desjarlais's mother had.

    "Barb Desjarlais learns fate of missing mother in MMIW case through DNA test
    Remains of woman found in Red River identified as Audrey Desjarlais
    "

    Jun 04, 2015

    "On Thursday morning — almost three years to the day that the woman's body was found — Desjarlais now knows it was her mother.

    "At least I know it's her," she said. "It's not an unknown lady in an unmarked grave anymore."

    But Desjarlais now has more questions for the authorities; Why did they tell her that her mother was never missing? Why didn't they believe her when she insisted otherwise? And what exactly happened to her mother in those final hours before she entered the river?

    "I have so many more questions," she said. "I need to know more."

    Winnipeg police announce 'open investigation' in case of indigenous woman, prompted by CBC report

    "The next step for police is to determine how Audrey Desjarlais ended up in the river and why.

    While her remains had no visible signs of foul play, police haven't ruled that out as a possible factor in Desjarlais's death. Now that investigators know who she was, they'll try to retrace her final steps."
