Police investigating suspicious death in Cranston

The Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit is investigating after a woman was found dead in the community of Cranston.

At approximately 2 p.m., on Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016, police were asked to check on the welfare of a person at a residence in the 200 block of Cramond Close S.E. When the officers did not get an answer at the door of the house, they forced their way inside and found the woman.

The deceased has been identified by the Office of the Medical Examiner as Cindy ENGER, 51, of Calgary. The autopsy has determined that the death is suspicious, however investigators are awaiting further testing to confirm the manner of death.

Police have learned that the deceased moved into the Cranston area in 2006 and she had approximately 20 tenants live with her over the last ten years. Investigators would like to speak with those tenants and are asking anyone who lived with ENGER to contact the Calgary Police Service.

At this time, the tenants are considered witnesses, not suspects.

Anyone with information about this suspicious death or who may have lived in the residence is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or the Homicide Unit Tip Line at 403-428-8877.
