? The Ottawa Citizen 2006
London police are trying to nail down what happened in the final hours of a St. Thomas woman?s life, after her body was found floating in the Thames River Saturday night.
Line Therrien, 36, was last seen alive about midnight last Thursday, walking near her St. Thomas home, police said. Two people fishing found her body 48 hours later, in the Thames River near Wellington Street in London.
What happened in the two-day period between the time Therrien was last seen alive and the time she was found dead is central to the police investigation, Const. Amanda Pfeffer said Thursday.
?We need to speak with anyone who may have spoken with her in those two days,? she said. ?We just don?t know.? Therrien, whose name police released Thursday hoping someone might have information on her final hours, lived with her partner, Frank, whose last name was unavailable, on Mondamin Street.
The couple?s tidy, powder-blue home, surrounded by a white picket fence and decorated with several potted plants, was quiet Thursday but for the barking of dogs.
A next-door neighbour said the pair had asked him to take care of the dogs Saturday.
Charles Herdman said the couple had planned a day trip to Port Dover.
But when Herdman talked to Frank, he was told Therrien wasn?t home yet and he wouldn?t need to come over to watch the dogs.
Police described her as white, about five-foot-six and 140 pounds, with short blond hair. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a red top and sandals.
Police haven?t found the black leather purse Therrien is believed to have been carrying when she left her home.

There seems to be two threads on this person.  The other is:

The official Crime Stoppers post lists two different ways to  spell her name and both seem they may be incorrect for the news report publishes "Line". Also the year in the Crime Stoppers post indicates 2007, but even the news report seems to confirm 2006 is different:
