The body of a Calgary girl, Taliyah Marsman, has been found days after her mother, Sara Baillie, was discovered dead and a 46-year-old man has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
"We are very saddened to be announcing today that we believe we have found the body of five-year-old Taliyah Marsman," Calgary police Chief Roger Chaffin told a news conference Thursday night.
He said the discovery has been a brutal blow both to the girl's family and to the 100 or so officers who have been working nonstop to find her since her mother's body was found in a basement suite in the city's northwest Monday night.
"They are completely devastated by the loss, as am I," Chaffin said.
A search was conducted throughout most of Thursday on a rural property near Chestermere east of Calgary.
The little girl's body was found just after 7 p.m. MT about eight kilometres east of Calgary just off McKnight Boulevard, Coleman said.

Police said Downey was known to both victims and Taliyah's father, Colin Marsman, and police believe Baillie was the likely target.
Downey has an "extensive criminal history at play" and had shown "limited co-operation" with police, Insp. Don Coleman said.

He said Downey is the only suspect in the case.
"The family is devastated, clearly," Coleman said.
Police say they don't know the motive at this time.
"That's something we still have to figure out," Coleman explained.
An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
Downey, who also goes by Simmons, is scheduled to appear in court July 20 and will remain in custody until that date.
