WINNIPEG — It’s been 15 months since Thelma Krull was last seen when she went for a walk on the morning of July 11, 2015.
Krull was 57 at the time of her disappearance and police continue to work on leads that may give the woman’s family closure.
Police provided a one-year update this past July, sharing details on individuals who may have been present when Krull was last seen in the area of Civic Park. A woman caught on surveillance video wearing a purple top was later identified, but no new information was found.
Police received information last July of a possible sighting of Krull in the area of Kimberly Avenue, east of Gateway Road, on the day she disappeared. A female described similar to Krull was reported to be in the company of a heavy set aboriginal man, approximately 5’8″ tall, 270 lbs., with a bowl-style haircut.
“By bringing this information forward … I’m confident and I know investigators are confident that we’re maybe that one step closer to the resolution that we want,” Const. Jason Michalyshen told reporters Wednesday.
Homicide investigators are asking anyone who may have information about the possible sighting of Krull and the man accompanying her to contact them at (204) 986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
