Saskatoon police say the human remains found near St. Louis in September are that of Megan Gallagher.

The remains were discovered on Sept. 29th at 2:30 p.m. on the first of a planned four-day search for Gallagher of the South Saskatchewan River in the St. Louis area.

Tuesday, Saskatoon’s Major Crime Section confirmed the deceased as Megan Gallagher.

During the search in September, Gallagher’s father said, “In whatever form it has to be, if Megan can come home, that’s an important piece.”

“If it is true that she was dropped off the bridge, or disposed of in the river here, she’s with the ancestors. That’s the only solace I can get.”
