Investigators from the Nunavut RCMP want help from the public in their continuing investigation into the death of a 46-year-old Kugluktuk woman who they have now identified as Margaret Ogina.

“Anyone with information about Margaret Ogina’s acquaintances, whereabouts and travels between Friday, April 7 to Monday, April 10, 2017 are asked to contact the Kugluktuk RCMP at 867-982-0123 or the Major Crime Unit at 867-975-4417 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS),” police said April 15 in a news release.

Nunavut RCMP members found Ogina’s body April 10 at her residence in Kugluktuk and are still treating her death as “suspicious,” after sending major crimes and forensic ID units into the community to investigate.

An autopsy has been ordered by the Nunavut chief coroner’s office, police said.

And the RCMP’s “V” Division Major Crime Unit has taken charge of the investigation.

Members of the Kugluktuk RCMP went to Ogina’s residence April 10 after receiving a call at about 10:30 a.m. from concerned family members, police said April 11.

Her family told police they had not heard from Ogina for a while, the release said.

Inside the home, officers found Ogina’s body.
