Prince Albert RCMP are asking the public for help with information about two black carpets that were found with the body of 28-year-old Monica Lee Burns.

Burns’ body was found January 17, in a remote area on a snowmobile trail 15 kilometres northwest of Prince Albert. Her death was ruled a homicide. An autopsy was conducted on Burns’ body, and completed on January 20, 2015, but RCMP are not releasing any information about the findings.

In a media release, RCMP stated that investigators believe that the rugs/carpets are connected to this homicide, and want to speak with anyone who might have knowledge of the person or persons who might have recently disposed of the carpets.

The two area rugs/carpets are described as having a white, glued mesh-style backing.  The original size of the rugs are 5 ft. wide x 8 ft. long; however both carpets have evidence of cutting along some of the edges, as well as having distinctive cut-outs, suggesting modification to fit in a particular space or room.  Investigators believe the rugs were purchased in the past year.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Prince Albert RCMP Detachment at 306-765-5501, or call Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), through SaskTel at *8477, or submit a tip online at
