Mystery of Delaine Copenace's death must be solved, says mother of drowned First Nations teen
The mother of a First Nations teen says she is angry and frustrated by a coroner's decision not to hold an inquest into her daughter's disappearance and death in Kenora, Ont., last winter.
Anita Ross said she will appeal the decision to the chief coroner, as she remains strongly opposed to the regional coroner's determination that her daughter Delaine Copenace, 16, accidentally drowned.
"I believe somebody is responsible for my daughter's death," Ross said. "I believe it was done by perpetrators, and those perpetrators are still out there."
