Police now have a suspect and an area along an Alberta highway where they believe the body of a 41-year-old single mother was dumped after she vanished from a parking lot nearly two years ago.
While the case is officially classified as a missing persons file, is was “totally out of character” for Sangeeta Khanna to suddenly disappear without notifying her family, Det. Ernie Schreiber said yesterday. For that reason, it is presumed that she has died, he said.
Khanna was last heard from on April 17, 2006, when she called her 15-year-old son, Kurn, to say she was stopping at the bank before heading home.
Police found her abandoned vehicle in the bank’s parking lot, near 23 Ave. and 66 St. Since then, her leather purse and keys have never been found, and no activity has been recorded on her credit cards.
Investigators won’t directly identify the male suspect. They did reveal that the man was known to Khanna, but not as a member of her family or her ex-husband. Khanna divorced in 2000. The suspect in the case is now only talking to his lawyer, Schreiber said.
