At approximately 1:30 pm on June 2, 1979 a truck driver working for Lansing Bagnall in Dorval discovers the naked body of a woman (5’4″, 122 lbs) in a wooden chest near a dumpster at 10255 cote de Liesse.  The chest is approximately 3′ x 2′.

There are no immediate / apparent marks of violence, but the girls has a lot of blood around her face. MUC investigators Richard McGuinnis and Gilbert Gagnon speculate that she had been strangled. An autopsy is performed, but no conclusive cause of death is determined, though the coroner maintains that strangulation is still a possibility.

The site is less than a mile from where the body of Tammy Leakey would be discovered less than 2 years later off Lindsay street in Dorval:

I was in Montreal last weekend, so I went to the Bibliothèque et Archives Nationales du Québec, search their Photo Police archives and found it again:
