Police seek witness to Bowness homicide
CALGARY -- Police are hoping to speak to a driver who was in the area of 34th Avenue and 79th Street N.W. about 5:30 a.m. on Feb. 10 and may have witnessed a homicide.
The body of Melissa Blommaert, 33, was found on the roadway by a passerby about 6 a.m.

While reviewing surveillance footage, police noted another vehicle was in the area at the same time and they are asking the driver to contact them.
"The motorist is considered a witness only and is not suspected of any wrongdoing," police said in a release.
"We believe this witness may have crucial information that could assist homicide detectives."
