Calgary, AB,

Disappearance of mother and child now suspected homicides

The investigation into a missing woman and her child is now being treated by police as a potential double homicide.

The Calgary Police Service has been unable to find any evidence confirming that 25-year-old Jasmine LOVETT or 22-month-old Aliyah SANDERSON* are alive. The last place anyone saw either of them was in Cranston on the evening of Tuesday, April 16, 2019, and the last activity on Jasmine’s financial accounts was two days later. There have been no signs of life since.

Investigators have a suspect in custody for questioning and do not believe this incident to be random because the suspect and victims knew each other. Police are currently working with multiple other agencies to search Cranston and the area around Bragg Creek for evidence. Property owners in and around Bragg Creek are asked to check their property and report anything suspicious.

The investigation is ongoing and investigators are still working to determine what occurred. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact police by calling the non-emergency number at 403-266-1234, or the Homicide Tip Line at 403-428-8877.

Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers through either of the following methods:
