The RCMP is releasing a photo of the woman who was discovered deceased in a tent near the Penniac Bridge last month in the hope that someone in the public may have information that could assist police in their investigation.

 The photo of Susan Lynn Burnside was taken approximately 15 years ago when she would have been 41. It is the most recent photo the police have been able to locate.

 The body of Ms. Burnside was discovered November 24, 2012. There are no obvious signs of foul play but police have not been able to determine the exact cause of death. It is believed the body was at that location for at least a year.

 Ms. Burnside was originally from Saint John but had lost touch with her family. She was last considered a transient and had no fixed address.

 Anyone with any information or who may have had contact in the past few years with Susan Lynn Burnside is asked to contact the RCMP at 1-888-506-RCMP (7267) or anonymously through N.B. Crime Stoppers online at www.crimenb.ca or 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)

I realize that those that are indigent may be found in tents, and even that campgrounds are areas of tent crimes, but I thought I would post the following threads that seem to have had a body found in a tent type situation to see if there are any connections to this thread's case.

"Jane Doe" was found in a tent in Kenora on June 17, 2009, as case no. 20090051OPP, still unresolved and unidentified. http://www.unsolvedcanada.ca/index.php?topic=3728.30

"Unidentified female" was found west of Rockwood near Guelph, in a roadside picnic area covered in a sleeping bag. Case No. 20050002OPP. http://www.missing-u.ca/UIs.aspx

Tammy Lynn Cordone's body was found in May 2009 in a Vancouver park. Alexander Lawrence La Glace, 45, of New Westminister, B.C. was charged with second-degree murder (he stabbed his "girlfriend" 18 times in the chest). http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2010/03/31/bc-west-vancouver-lighthouse-park-murder.html  La Glace was released from a mental institution months before her death. Even though a 2008 B.C. Review Board found he had a long history of mental illness, drug abuse and run-ins with police, the psychiatrist  said he had no other history of violence so the Review Board concluded he did not pose a significant threat. Let him go. and He is in trial over Tammy's death. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2010/03/31/bc-west-vancouver-lighthouse-park-murder.html He told the undercover officer "I just want to kill someone again. I want to be ill again. I'm a killer," he said, "Just kidding. I like messing with people's minds." http://www.canada.com/health/Trial+opens+accused+Lighthouse+Park+murder/6239512/story.html  In November 2012 he plead guilty to manslaughter, but not that he intended to kill her. http://www.timescolonist.com/news/lighthouse-park-killer-in-vancouver-pleads-guilty-to-manslaughter-1.18178

Shirley Lynn Allwright, DLS - August 30, 2004, Date Found August 43, Murdered in Calgary. Claude Baril was tried and sentenced. Given 7-year sentence for aggravate assault (not murder) as he claimed it was kinky sex gone wrong. Not clear whether he was in jail or not at the time Susan Burnside would have passed. What I found interesting is that Claude Baril is from Quebec, but had "aggravated assault" with Ms. Allwright in Calgary, thus traveling long distances when crimes occurred.

Susan Burnside is my sister.  We were looking for her, and know exactly when she died.  She had been in that spot for over 5 years.  It is sad, but we are happy to have closure.  It bothers our family that this was reported that she was not in contact with family. This is not true, up until she died, we did have contact with her.  My Dad was in New Brunswick and he filed a missing persons in 2008. My sister chose the life of tenting.  That is a hard life, and it is a shame she died so young.

Reach thanks for clearing that up for us, ofter there are misspublished things I know, as was the case with my brother.  It is a good thing to have closure at least thought.  It seems this was the life she chose for her self, and so be it , right.  It is as you say  a hard life, while leaves me thinking it may have very well been something like pnemonia etc that hit her in the end.  May she rest in peace.
