Billboards seek tips in unsolved death of Amber Tuccaro
New billboards have been placed near Leduc in hopes they will lead police to find out what happened to a Fort McMurray woman whose remains were found outside Edmonton last year.
Amber Tuccaro was last seen in 2010 after leaving her hotel room in Nisku to catch a ride into Edmonton. Her remains were found east of Leduc in September 2012.
The billboard features a picture of the 20-year-old with the message “Have you heard the voice?”
People are then referred to RCMP’s Project Kare website. There, they can hear a recorded cellphone conversation between Tuccaro and a third party on Aug. 18, 2010.
The man is heard in the background trying to convince Tuccaro that he is driving east from Nisku to travel into Edmonton via 50th Street.
Members of Tuccaro's family, including her mother Vivian and brother Paul, joined RCMP for Tuesday's announcement.
Paul Tuccaro says that the family wants answers to what happened.
"I believe what goes around, comes around. It'll come back to him," he said. "I'm waiting for the day that is does happen whether it's in a courtroom or whatever. I just want to find justice for my sister."
The recording was first released last year in hopes the public would help identify the man heard on the cellphone call but they still don’t know who he is.
Two of these billboards are being placed up near where Tuccaro’s remains were discovered. .
