Death of First Nations teen in Thunder Bay surrounded by mystery, lawyer says
"Big questions" remain about how the body of a First Nations teenager turned up in river three months after the boy was last seen in 2011 in Thunder Bay, Ont., according to his family's lawyer.
Christa Big Canoe represents the families of six of the seven First Nations students whose deaths in Thunder Bay are the subject of an inquest, including the parents of Jordan Wabasse.
Friends of the 15-year-old testified at the inquest that they watched him get off a city transit bus a short distance from his boarding home on the night of Feb. 7, 2011. His body was found on May 10, 2011 nearly two kilometres away, in the Kaministiquia River.
