EDMONTON -- A homicide investigation has led RCMP to Edmonton in search of anyone who saw a 25-year-old woman before she was found dead near Hinton, Alta.

The Athabasca woman was reported missing on April 15. Her remains were found outside of Hinton, 280 kilometres west of Edmonton, at the end of April.
Since then, police ruled her death a homicide, and asked for helping identifying two men wanted for questioning.
