Victim identified in Cranston homicide

Investigators continue to investigate the death of a woman in the community of Cranston and have now deemed it a homicide.

At approximately 2:50 p.m., on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021, we were called to the 500 block of Cranston Drive S.E., for reports of a medical event. Upon arrival, officers found a woman in a parked vehicle who was later pronounced deceased on scene.

An autopsy was completed today by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, which identified the victim as 35-year-old Norma-Jean MUIRHEAD, of Calgary and B.C.
