Police suspect foul play in case of missing Igloolik woman
Susan Kublu-Iqqittuq was last seen on Jan. 10, police say
Investigators with the Ottawa Police Service's major crime unit have taken over the case of a missing woman from Igloolik, Nunavut, whose disappearance has been deemed suspicious.
Susan Kublu-Iqqittuq, 37, was last seen in Ottawa on Jan. 10, according to a news release from Ottawa police. Police have released a video where she is seen in the area of Elgin Street and Laurier Avenue.
Police believe she left the area at around 11:50 a.m. that day, and likely boarded a bus at Mackenzie King Bridge and disembarked near Carling Avenue and Pinecrest Road.
The major crime unit took over the case after the initial investigation suggested "foul play may be involved," police said in a separate email.
Kublu-Iqqittuq is described as an Inuk female, four-feet-11-inches tall and 115 pounds, with a stocky build, black hair and brown eyes. She is known to frequent the downtown and ByWard Market area.
Kublu-Iqqittuq was reported missing around the same time as her daughter, who has since been located in Toronto.
