It is believed a 38-year-old Canadian man killed his common-law wife then made mulch out of her body by putting it in a wood chipper.
Police in Edmonton believe they found the remains of 43-year-old Roxanne Bigelow, who had been reported missing, however, they are waiting for the medical examiner’s office to confirm the identity of the body on Monday.
Trevor Bobocel, Bigelow’s common-law husband, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder and committing indignity to a body, after police found Bigelow’s remains in a rural location near Lac La Biche.
Reports say Mounties arrested Bobocel near a burning car; however, it is unclear whether the car played in role in the crime.
Bigelow’s five children are currently being cared for by her mother. It is unclear whether Bobocel is the biological father to any of the children.
