Police Suspect Husband Killed Missing Trucker

Police say that a female trucker who has been missing under suspicious circumstances since December is now being treated as a homicide victim.

Trucker Vanished Under Suspicious Circumstances

51 year old Sheree Fertuck of Saskatoon has been missing since December 7. Her family became suspicious when the normally reliable single mother of three and new grandmother missed an appointment at 8 p.m. on December 7. Her truck was located at a gravel pit near Kenaston the next morning with her coat, phone, and keys still inside. Fertuck was nowhere to be found, but there was no sign of a struggle in or near her truck.

Police Say That They Now Believe Trucker Was A Homicide Victim

During a press conference on Monday, police said that they now believe that Fertuck was a victim of homicide based on the fact that she has not contacted her family, and has not used her bank cards or passport. Police have also indicated that they have evidence pointing towards homicide that they are not sharing with the public.

Search parties have scoured the area since Fertuck’s disappearance but have come up with nothing.

Police say that they will begin searching “specific areas” for Fertuck’s body.

Investigators do not have a clear motive for anyone to kill Fertuck, but they say that they will not rule anyone out as a suspect — including her own friends and family members.

Fertuck is five-foot-four and 250 pounds, with greying brown hair and blue eyes. If you have any information on her disappearance, please contact the police by calling 306-975-5145 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477
