No inquest into death of Kenora teen Delaine Copenace, regional coroner rules


An inquest is not required into the death of Delaine Copenace, 16, who disappeared and was later found dead in Kenora, Ont., this spring, according to the regional supervising coroner.

Dr. Michael Wilson informed Copenace's mother, Anita Ross, and Grand Council Treaty 3 of his decision in a letter sent earlier this month.

Ross was seeking an inquest in hopes that it would answer outstanding questions about how her daughter's body came to be found in Lake of the Woods weeks after she was last seen within a short walk of her home.
