The Peel police homicide unit is investigating after the remains of a woman who went missing in July were found two months later in Mississauga.

On Sept. 25, police responded to reports of human remains found in a bush area near a utility box in the Glen Erin Drive and Dunwin Drive area.

The remains were later identified to be Xiuyan Chen, 42, who was previously reported missing on July 28.

Police believe Chen “met with foul play” and was the victim of a homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Peel Crime Stoppers.

This is Peel region’s 24th homicide of 2018.
