Attawapiskat family facing 'agonizing' wait for answers months after death of 13-year-old girl


The family of a 13-year-old Attawapiskat First Nation girl whose body was found outdoors by a patrolling local police officer in October is still waiting for a final report on the cause of death from the Ontario coroner’s office.

Sheridan Hookimaw’s body was found by a Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service (NAPS) officer while on patrol near an area known locally as the “first rapids” on Oct. 19.

Since then, the family has been waiting for the final coroner’s report on how Sheridan died. They are also waiting for the return of Sheridan’s belongings including her purse and an iPod she used to record a final goodbye to her family.
