Edmonton Police Service say that a woman who went missing in June 2019 is dead, as concealed remains have been confirmed to belong to the victim.

According to the EPS Homicide Section, 32-year-old Patricia Wendy Pangracs is deceased, and foul play is expected in the circumstances that led to her death.

Pangracs was last heard from Saturday, June 8, 2019, and was reported missing in Edmonton on Monday, July 8, 2019.
