The family of slain physician Elana Fric-Shamji thanked the public for their support Friday, as police returned to the Kleinburg location where her body was found last week.
“We deeply appreciate the support that Elana’s children and we as a family have received — it has been a kindness for which we are very thankful,” her relatives said a statement sent by the Ontario Medical Association on Friday.
The remains of the family doctor and mother of three were found in a suitcase in Kleinburg on Dec. 1.
Neurosurgeon Mohammed Shamj, Fric Shamji’s husband of 12 years, has been charged with first-degree murder.
In their statement, the family provided a long list of thank yous which included police, the Scarborough and Rouge Hospital, where Fric-Shamji worked, and the Children’s Aid Society. They have asked for privacy.
