Winnipeg Police have confirmed that the remains of Thelma Krull were found by a hunter on October 27, 2018.
The hunter called RCMP in Steinbach after he found what he thought was a human skull. At the time of the find, RCMP confirmed it was human remains that had been there for a long time.
Krull, 57, went missing on July 11, 2015, after going out for a walk near her East Kildonan home. At the time of her disappearance investigators believed she had been involved in a physical altercation and forcibly taken from the area.
Over the years police have maintained that they believe the suspect involved in Krull’s abduction lived or worked in the Valley Garden area or is somehow connected to the area.
In July of 2017, two years after Thelma went missing police released the sketch of a man that they said was seen with Krull near Kimberly Avenue and Grey Street. They said that Krull appeared to be in distress.
Homicide detectives are once again asking for help from anyone who may have lived in the Valley Gardens area in July 2015 to report any suspicions or information they may have. Police are also asking anyone who lives in the RM of Tache near the location that Krull was found to report anything they might remember from the summer of 2015 they could have been suspicious.
