House yields woman's remains Discovery made after city case linked to B.C. homicide http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/house-yields-womans-remains-207035701.html She was last seen out for a stroll in downtown Winnipeg in 2006. Family and friends have spent more than six years wondering whether Myrna Letandre would ever walk back into their lives. Those hopes were dashed this week with a stunning discovery inside a Point Douglas rooming house that has brought a mixture of grief and relief to those closest to her. Police said Friday human remains found at 97 Lorne Ave. Thursday have been identified as Letandre, who was 37 years old when she was reported missing in the fall of 2006. "For the family, now we can place her to rest. Appropriate rest," a solemn Barry Anderson told the Free Press. He said it came as a shock to hear the mystery surrounding his cousin had been solved. "We're just trying to get as much information now as we can," he said. Another cousin, Sidney Letandre, said he always figured the cousin he grew up with and treated like a sister didn't disappear on purpose. "It's bittersweet. At least now we know we can take her home and let her rest," Letandre said. RCMP and Winnipeg police teamed up to form the Project Devote task force in 2009 and have identified 20 homicides and eight missing-persons cases linked by one factor -- the individuals had all a high risk of becoming victims of violent crime. Letandre was one of those eight missing persons. This is the first of those 28 Devote cases to be resolved.
