Crashed SUV found in rural Saskatchewan belongs to missing woman
Esterhazy RCMP said a crashed SUV containing human remains found on an isolated, rural property near Bangor, Sask., on Oct. 22 belonged to a missing woman.
The investigation has determined the vehicle was last known to be driven by Ruby Barnes, 64, at the time she was reported missing from the Carlyle area on June 18.
Preliminary investigation shows the vehicle went through a T-intersection on a gravel road and into dense bush.
The SUV was not immediately visible from the remote road and had significant damage.
An autopsy is scheduled for later this week to determine the identity of the human remains.
RCMP said there is nothing to indicate the death is suspicious in nature.
This investigation is ongoing with assistance from forensic identification, traffic reconstruction and the major crimes unit.
Bangor is roughly 175 kilometres east of Regina.
