Domestic violence 'an epidemic,' advocate says after 2 Indigenous women killed in Winnipeg during pandemic

 


Sue Caribou says she tried to help her friend Marie Morin check in to an emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence in Winnipeg, but there were too many barriers.

And the head of a provincial association for women's shelters worries other Manitobans who need help have essentially become "prisoners in their own home" during the coronavirus pandemic.

Marie Morin was found dead in the city's William Whyte area on May 15, after what police believe was an incident of domestic violence.
