Another statement on our lack of real community in this world
From the CBC this morning.
The body of a 44-year-old woman believed to have been dead for more than a year has been found in her home in a village north of Prince Albert, Sask.
The RCMP discovered the body of Margaret Moyer in Christopher Lake last week.
Police were called after the town administrator noticed her mail had been returned to the town office for a number of weeks.
People who live in the town say Moyer was very quiet and kept to herself.
However, she was known in the arts community as a wildlife painter, according to artist George Glenn who once lived across the street from her in Prince Albert.
Four years ago, Glenn brought his studio to Christopher Lake, but it came to him as a complete surprise that Moyer was even in the town.
The entire incident has upset the village, Glenn said.
"Well, I think it must be shocking. It's a dreadful kind of thing for someone to be found dead after such a period of time, and I think for the immediate neighbours particularly."
Police believe foul play wasn't a factor in her death.
Christopher Lake, a village of about 215 people, is about 40 kilometres north of Prince Albert.
