“An exhaustive search by RCMP Search and Rescue resulted in additional evidence associated to this investigation being located in a treed area along a roadway on Red Pheasant Cree Nation,” the release said. “An autopsy took place on Feb. 7.”
RCMP say they publicized Pritchard’s name because her death is suspicious and they’re looking for information on where she was seen between Jan. 1 and Feb. 5.
