23 year old April Carpenter identified as woman pulled from Winnipeg’s Red River

Winnipeg police pulled the body of 23-year-old April Carpenter from the Red River in Winnipeg Thursday.

Police say it’s not clear how the woman died and an autopsy has been scheduled.

They say no further information is available and the investigation is continuing.

Member of the legislature Nahanni Fontaine confirmed Carpenter’s identity who has been missing since April 26.

Fontaine says Carpenter’s mother wanted people to know her daughter’s body was found.

“We encourage anyone with any information to come forward so we can find justice for April,” she posted Thursday on Facebook.
