Where is Imebet Foster?

That is what Peel Regional Police investigators are trying to figure out.

The 54-year-old woman is believed to be dead – and her son charged with murder – following a probe into her disappearance, one that began last Friday night and continues.

Police have yet to recover her body even though they say there was enough evidence to proceed with a first-degree murder charge against son, 24-year-old Tyrell Foster.

Police say they were called to her apartment on January 29 at Knightsbridge Rd. in Bramalea after receiving reports she had met with foul play.

After initially being told she was “out of the country” further investigation by police led them to believe Imebet had been killed at the apartment and then moved.

Peel Police say they are actively looking to recover her remains.

Her employer, New Visions Toronto, a non-profit organization that provides care for people with developmental and physical disabilities, posted a website tribute to Imebet yesterday. It reads they are “saddened by the sudden and tragic loss of one of our dedicated staff” and that “she will be greatly missed by the people we support, their families and staff.”

She had worked at the company for 20 years.

Police are now treating the investigation as the department’s first homicide investigation of 2021.
