Son faces charge while police search for Brampton murder victim
Even though they are treating her case as a murder investigation, Peel Regional Police have yet to find Brampton's Imebet Foster.
The 54-year-old woman is believed to be dead following a police probe into her disappearance that began Friday night (January 29).
Police say they were called to her apartment on Knightsbridge Rd. in Bramalea after receiving reports she had met with foul play. Although her body was not discovered at the scene, police believe enough evidence existed and proceeded to make the arrest.
Her son, Tyrell Foster, 24, is now charged with first degree murder.
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 Peel Region's first homicide of 2021.
