West Edmonton bodies ID'd as missing couple

Two bodies found in a west Edmonton field on Wednesday have been identified as a missing city couple.

A man riding an ATV found the bodies of Perry Kit Wong, 72, and his common-law wife Eloise Fendelet, 71, at a sprawling construction site near the Lewis Estates subdivision at about 5:20 p.m. MT.

Edmonton police said Friday that autopsies have determined the manner of death to be homicide, but the cause of death isn't being released.

The couple lived in the downtown area and ran their own dental business. A friend last saw them on Dec. 27, 2010.

Friends and co-workers became concerned when the couple failed to return to work on Jan. 3. They tried to find them, and when those efforts failed contacted police. Wong and Fendelet were listed as missing by police on Jan. 18.

Edmonton police ask anyone with information about the couple's disappearance to contact them at 780-423-4567.
