Napolean was reported missing by her family to the RCMP on July 23rd, at which point, she had last been seen July 8th on the Blueberry Reserve.
On August 4th, investigators found human remains in a burnt cabin, located approximately 30 kilometres north of Buick Creek on the Beatton Airport Road.
Medical and dental records confirmed the remains as being of Napolean, dead at the age of 42 years old.
Police say they believe the cabin fire occurred between the evening of July 8th and the morning of July 9th, and due to the heat of the fire, a cause of death has yet to be determined.
“Resources from both Fort St. John RCMP and North District Major Crime Unit are investigating both Napolean’s death and the cabin fire and are treating both as suspicious,” a press release reads.
Anyone who saw Napolean on or around the date of July 8th, or has information regarding the cabin fire, contact the Fort St. John detachment at 250 787 8100, or call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222 8477.
