Remains of missing Edmonton woman discovered outside of North Battleford: RCMP

REGINA — RCMP in Saskatchewan say they have found the remains of a missing Edmonton woman who they believe was the victim of a homicide.

Mounties say their major crime unit was searching a rural area outside of North Battleford, Sask., last week as part of an investigation when a police dog made the discovery.

On Wednesday, police identified the remains as those of Tiki Brook-Lyn Laverdiere.

The 25-year-old woman was reported missing on May 12. Her last contact with her family was a text on May 1.

She was last seen in North Battleford the same day.

Police had said her disappearance was suspicious and would be investigated as a homicide.

They said Laverdiere was around North Battleford and the nearby Thunderchild First Nation to attend a funeral on April 27.

RCMP said she wanted to return to Edmonton and didn't have transportation, so investigators were concerned she may have tried hitchhiking to get back to Alberta.
