Sources say the Aboriginal woman whose remains were found in the Choiceland area yesterday is a member of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band.


The body of 32-year-old Ella Arleen Brown was found at 11:30 yesterday morning, approximately one mile from her last known location.


Brown is reportedly the daughter of band councillor Irwin Hennie.


She was the subject of a missing person bulletin issued Wednesday by the Smeaton RCMP.


Brown was last seen alive early Tuesday morning in Choiceland.


She was wearing a pullover sweater and toque at the time, and the Mounties believe she may have been hitchhiking on Highway 55 in frigid temperatures.
