The family of Linda Clark say they saw nothing in the 55-year-old's life that suggested she would die violently.

Darwyn Clark can't understand how his older sister Linda came to be fatally shot outside a Saskatoon apartment building in May.

Darwyn farms near Tisdale and said Linda would come visit and they stayed in monthly contact. He noticed nothing about her that raised any red flags.

"She was back and forth, she came out here all the time and stuff like that," Darwyn said. "She was just an ordinary person."

"I don't know what she was doing, prior to that evening. I wasn't there so I don't know."

Linda Clark, 55, was born in Saskatoon and at various points in her life she lived in La Ronge and Edmonton. Her brother said that she was working for a local courier company when she died.

A building with a troubled history

Police were called to an apartment building on the 100 block of 25th Street W. just after 1 a.m. CST on May 27. There had been reports of gunshots at the building.

When they arrived, police found Clark's body on the outside steps of the west side of the property.

Police combed the building and neighbourhood for clues. At one point, they evacuated the building and sent in the Emergency Response Team (ERT) and bomb robot.

It was the third time that the police ERT had been called to the building. Earlier that same month, a man and woman at the building were charged with firearms and drug offences.

On Thursday, police asked for the public's help in locating three "persons of interest" they believe may have information about the killing.
