On October 10, 2014, Lillian Morrell was found deceased in her home on Evergreen Drive in Moncton.

New Brunswick RCMP are asking for the public’s help to solve a woman’s homicide seven years after it happened.

The death was not initially deemed suspicious. In the weeks following the death, police received information that led them to determine that the 49-year-old woman was the victim of a homicide.

Police declined to share what that information was, or to say what Morrell’s cause of death was, citing concerns around compromising the investigation.

In 2014, two people were arrested as part of the investigation. They were later released, and no charges were ever laid.

Police have released three specific locations and time frames of interest in the investigation. Anyone who was in the following areas at the specified times is ask to contact police:

  • The home of Lillian Morrell, 41 Evergreen Drive in Moncton, any time on October 9 and 10.
  • Irving/Circle K, 1930 Mountain Road, between 10 p.m. on October 9 and 3 a.m. on October 10.
  • NB Liquor, 1855 Mountain Road, between 10 and 11 p.m. on October 9.

On Oct. 8, the RCMP shared a statement from Malcolm Squires, Morrell’s brother, in which he issued a plea for anyone with information to come forward.

“Lillian was a mother, a grandmother, a sister, and a daughter. She was so loved. It’s all we’re asking — come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the New Brunswick RCMP’s Major Crime Unit at 506-452-3491
