The death of a woman whose body was found yesterday has been declared a homicide and charges have been laid against one man.
Just before 9 p.m., Monday, April 27, 2020, police were called to a residence in the 600 block of Marian Crescent N.E., for reports that a woman was found deceased. Upon arrival, police and EMS discovered the woman’s body and a man in medical distress. The man was transported to hospital in serious condition, where he was later released into police custody.
Police believe that the victim was murdered sometime between Friday, April 24, 2020, and Monday, April 27, 2020, at 8:30 p.m. Concerned for her welfare, the victim’s family attended her residence, where they located her deceased.
An autopsy was conducted today by The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and the victim has been identified as Brittany Anne MESZAROS, 24, of Calgary.
Investigators are still in the process of reviewing CCTV and speaking with people who were in the area and may have heard something. While a motive is still being determined, the offender and victim had been living in a common law relationship and the homicide is believed to be domestic in nature.
