15-yr-old slain First Nation girl remembered in Winnipeg

 


The drumbeat grew louder for a national inquiry into a missing and murdered First Nations woman Monday night in Winnipeg, as family members sang and prayed in commemoration of their 15 year-old “beauty queen” whose body was discovered in the city's Red River one year ago.

Tina Fontaine’s body was pulled from the river in a plastic bag Aug. 17, 2014. Police believe her killer, still at large, left her in that state. It was about a week after she went missing from Child and Family Services' care.

“It feels like yesterday that she’s been gone,” said her cousin, Rose Fontaine, 16, from Sagkeeng First Nation.
