Calgary police are investigating at a home in the southeast community of Cranston after a body was found inside early Sunday afternoon.
Police were called to a home in the 200 block of Cramond Close S.E. for a check on welfare call at about 2:00 p.m.
Officers forced entry in to the home when no one answered the door and found a woman deceased inside.
“We got a phone call from her ex-husband, they share custody of a son, the husband was attempting to drop the son off at the residence over the weekend, he was unable to contact her and he became concerned, he contacted the Calgary Police Service on Sunday. We attended the residence, we found it secure, we had to force our way into the residence and we found her inside,” said S/Sgt. Doug Andrus, CPS Homicide Unit.
The Office of the Medical Examiner has identified the woman as Cindy Enger, 51, of Calgary.
Police say the autopsy has determined that her death was suspicious but they are waiting for further testing to confirm the cause.
Investigators say Enger moved to the area in 2006 and had about 20 tenants over the last ten years.
They are looking to speak to anyone who may have lived with Enger during that time.
“We don’t believe anyone was living with her, however, we are aware that there were over 20 tenants living with her over that ten year period and again we would like to have them contact the Calgary Police Service to assist us with the investigation,” said Andrus.
Police believe Enger was last seen alive on Friday and they are working to collect forensic evidence at the scene.
Anyone with information about this suspicious death or who may have lived in the residence is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or the Homicide Unit Tip Line at 403-428-8877.
