Calgary police believe woman missing since 2016 a homicide victim

·1 min read

CALGARY — Police say they believe a Calgary woman who disappeared more than five years ago was a victim of a homicide.

Tammie Doreen Howard, who was 49 when she vanished, was last heard from on Dec. 24, 2016, and reported missing by her family four months later.

Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta says investigators initially believed it was a missing person case but have followed many leads and determined Howard was killed.

Police are hoping the public can provide information on a light-coloured Jeep Wrangler that is believed to be connected to Howard's death.

Schiavetta says some cases are solved within hours or days but others, like this one, can take a lot longer.

He says police will continue to work the case so Howard's family gets answers.
