Story of Katie Ballantyne

Katie Sylvia Ballantyne was a 40-year-old mother of four when a friend reported her missing to the Edmonton Police Service on May 5, 2003.

A farmer found Ballantyne’s remains in a field near Leduc, Alberta on July 7, 2003. The KARE unit, an RCMP entity that investigates files of murdered or missing vulnerable persons in Alberta, is handling the homicide.

Family members say they last met with investigators in 2013, but learned no new details.
