Carolyn Sinclair's body was found on the weekend.

The 25-year-old, who was a sex-trade worker, disappeared months ago, and police say her body had been in the alley behind Notre Dame Avenue for some time.

No arrests have been made in the slaying — one of dozens involving aboriginal women over the years.

The mourners lit a small fire and tucked roses into a ribbon tied around a power pole. A traditional drum group also played.
