With the help of forensic artists the Saskatoon Police Service has now determined what the "woman in the well" may have looked like before her mysterious death sometime between 1900 and 1920.
In June, 2006, work crews discovered human remains while excavating a site at the corner of 108th Street and Central Avenue. Since that time the remains have been examined, a determination of homicide was made, and a police investigation launched, involving numerous agencies. Most recently the SPS Major Crime and Historical Case Unit/Missing Person Task Force enlisted the help of two facial re-constructionists, who were able to produce very similar re-creations of what the woman would have looked like.
The media is invited to attend a news conference Wednesday, June 24th, at 10:30 a.m., in the Saskatoon Police Service boardroom, as we unveil the reconstructions.
