Police looking for info on slain woman

  • Print

Winnipeg police are releasing new details into the unsolved slaying of a young city woman.

The body of Simone Sanderson, 23, was found in an alley near the intersection of Burrows Avenue and Main Street on Sept. 2, 2012. She had been reported missing one week earlier.

No arrests have been made. Today police provided a detailed update to the public in hopes of stirring up leads in the 15-month-old investigation.

Specifically, police revealed that Sanderson had been involved in the sex trade at the time of her death, was known to regularly use illicit drugs, and often frequented the area where her body was found.

Police say Sanderson also utilized "social media platforms" such as Facebook to make contact with potential clients. It’s possible that’s how she met her killer.

Sanderson was last seen wearing a pink skort and black sports bra on the evening of Aug. 26, 2012.

Anyone with information regarding this matter is asked to contact investigators at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).

Family members previously told the Free Press Sanderson began a "downward spiral" in the spring of 2012 due to problems in her home life.
