The son of Edmonton's former police chief has been charged in the death of Dana Turner, whose body was found near Innisfail last October, two months after she disappeared.
RCMP said on Thursday that Mark Damien Lindsay, 25, of Edmonton, is charged with second degree murder in Turner's death. He also is charged with performing an indignity to a body and obstruction of justice.
Turner, from Fort Saskatchewan, was last seen around 5 p.m., Aug. 14, 2011, when she was caught on security video at a west Edmonton gas station. Lindsay, Turner's boyfriend, was released from jail just days before she disappeared.
He was arrested in the slaying at the North Fraser Pretrial Centre in Port Coquitlam B.C., police said. Police said Lindsay will be returned to Alberta for a court appearance, the date of which has yet to be determined.
Turner's remains were found about 10 km west of Innisfail on Oct. 9.
Lindsay is the adopted son of former Edmonton police chief John Lindsay.
The RCMP said their investigation continues and anyone with information should contact Fort Saskatchewan RCMP at 780-992-6100 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
