Late last week, the Calgary police released an image of the victim, identified as 58-year-old Judy Maerz.  That image was from the night before Maerz was found in the Deerfoot Athletic Park.

Investigators are trying to build a timeline of Maerz’s final movements.

They had been requesting dashcam footage from northbound Deerfoot Trail between Memorial Drive and 16 Avenue NE between the hours of 4 and 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 16.

Now, they’re asking for CCTV or dashcam footage from Renfrew and Mayland Heights.

“We have been making progress in piecing together Judy’s final activities through tips and information from the public and her associates,” said Staff Sgt. Sean Gregson of the Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit.

“CCTV and dashcam footage have been critical in helping us narrow down our timeline of events leading up to the morning of Feb. 16, and we are asking for more video from the public to be able to complete the puzzle.”

Investigators are hoping for video from commercial or residential locations in the following areas. The video should be from between 2 and 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 16.

  • Eighth Avenue N.E. from 19 Street N.E. to Edmonton Trail
  • 19 Street N.E. from 16 Avenue N.E. to Memorial Drive N.E.
  • Russet Road from Eighth Avenue to 16 Avenue N.E.
  • Sixth Street from Eighth Avenue to 16 Avenue N.E.
  • Edmonton Trail from Eighth Avenue to 16 Avenue N.E.
  • 10 Street N.E. from Eighth Avenue to First Avenue N.E.

Citizens or business owners in these areas that haven’t spoken to investigators are being asked to preserve the video and contact police.
