Investigators search for clues after missing woman’s remains found near Kamloops

Samantha Paul.


VANCOUVER – Dozens of RCMP investigators spent the day searching an area about 40 kilometres southeast of Kamloops, where remains of a missing Kamloops woman were found June 1.

RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush told CFJC News that this technique allows for every square inch of the ground to be searched.

Twenty-six-year-old Samantha Paul went missing in September, 2013. RCMP are now trying to determine what led to her death.

“Given the fact that the skull that we did find and the DNA that came back positive to Samantha is all that we have at this point,” said Bush.

“We’re looking for anything else that may further the case, that may lead to any evidence to suggest how she met with her death. And whether we’ll find further remains up here, or whether we’ll find any evidence of what took place up here, I mean, that’s the question we’re all looking for.”

Investigators are not saying that Paul met with foul play but they do know she did not end up in the Campbell Lake area on her own.

They will continue searching the area for the next few days.
