Several sources have confirmed that investigators looking into the murder of Loretta Saunders, the missing student of Saint Mary’s University in Halifax whose body was discovered along a New Brunswick highway last week, have found new information related to the case. 26-year-old Inuk woman from Labrador, Saunders, was reported missing on Feb. 17.
According to Chronicle Herald, the investigators have found that Saunders’ body was kept in a hockey bag, and they also have a security video of two people carrying a hockey bag out of an apartment building on Cowie Hill Road in Halifax, where police allege Saunders was killed on Feb. 13. The two prime suspects charged with first-degree murder, 28-year-old Victoria Lea Henneberry and 25-year-old Blake Leggette, are set to return to Halifax provincial court on March 19 for their preliminary inquiry. Currently, Henneberry and Leggette are held at the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility in Dartmouth, where they are not allowed to communicate with each other without legal counsel.
