Saskatoon police have identified the woman found dead inside a Caswell Hill home after a fire last week.
On July 6, firefighters found the remains of 37-year-old Crystal McFadyen while responding to a call at 229 Avenue F North around 2:30 a.m.
On Tuesday, police said they have since learned McFadyen was eight months pregnant.
Investigators were also able to confirm the death was a homicide following an autopsy of McFadyen and her unborn child Monday.
The Saskatoon woman’s death had already been labelled suspicious before 39-year-old Jonathan Alexander Rosenthal was charged with arson Monday.
As of Wednesday morning, Rosenthal was facing the arson charge in connection with the fire and had been described by police as “a person of interest” in McFadyen’s death.
As the story began to circulate Wednesday, sources informed 650 CKOM that Rosenthal and McFadyen were in a relationship.
Police are still looking for any information about McFadyen — also known to friends as Crystal Louis — in the days leading up to the fire.
Family had not heard from her since July 3. She was reported missing two days later.
According to her Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, McFadyen was a member of the North Saskatchewan Regiment Pipes and Drums and a University of Saskatchewan graduate.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 306-975-8300 or by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
