People walking near the river spotted the latest body at about 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon. The woman’s body was floating down the river on an ice floe.
Spokesman Chris McLeod said an autopsy would be conducted on the body Friday. Police hope it will tell them the woman’s age, cause of death and how long she’d been on the ice. Police are treating the death as suspicious.
Members of Project KARE, a task force investigating the death or disappearance of about 80 sex-trade workers in Western Canada, were called to the scene Thursday afternoon. On Monday, a groundskeeper called police after a young woman’s body was found on the Edmonton Springs golf course, in a remote area northwest of the city.
