Red Deer RCMP now say the body of a woman found murdered in February was disposed of in a recycling dumpster in Red Deer.

The body of Nellie Talia Meguinis, 27, was discovered when a recycling truck was emptying its load at a recycling facility in the Riverside Industrial Park in Red Deer on Feb. 22, police said on Monday.

The woman was earlier identified as Meguinis, a mother of three from Calgary who had arrived in Red Deer earlier that month.

Red Deer RCMP released the woman’s photograph and the new information on Monday in the hope it will help locate a suspect in the murder of the woman.

Along with the information on how Meguinis’s body was discovered, police now reveal that she had arrived in Red Deer on Feb. 17 via Greyhound bus.

She had been staying at an apartment near 57th Street and 56th Avenue and was last seen alive early in the morning on Feb. 20.

Her obituary, posted by a Calgary funeral home, describes Meguinis as a mother, sister, daughter and friend who lived life to the fullest. She is survived by her sons, Kaleb, Noah and Kaden, as well as four brothers and a sister.

Police hope the release of additional information will encourage people to step forward with any information that may help the investigation of Meguinis’s death.

Anyone with information that may lead police to a suspect is asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. To remain anonymous, submit information to www.tipsubmit.com or call Crime Stoppers, 1-800-222-8477.
