Investigators with the HRP/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit, with the assistance of RCMP in New Brunswick, have located the body of Loretta Saunders.
At approximately 4:30 p.m. investigators located Loretta’s body in the median off Route 2 of the Trans-Canada Highway, west of Salisbury, New Brunswick. Forensic investigators from both Halifax Regional Police and RCMP in New Brunswick are in the process of retrieving her remains. As a result, the highway has been reduced to one lane of traffic near the scene.
