Another woman found dead in Winnipeg



Once again CBC is reporting that "Police say they have located missing woman Christine Wood's remains in a farm field east of Winnipeg. Wood, 21, was last spotted on Aug. 19, 2016, when leaving a hotel on Berry Street after 9 p.m. CT. The Oxford House First Nation resident had been visiting family in Winnipeg. In April, police declared her death a homicide and charged a suspect, but said they had not yet located Wood's remains. Winnipeg police say there was enough forensic evidence at the home of Brett Overby, 30, to charge him with second-degree murder."

Last month two Indigenous women were murdered in Whitehouse including a missing woman's advocate. These tragedies keep occurring. In Vancouver a First Nations woman named Janice Bryant was shot dead less than two weeks ago by the Hells Angels to punish her husband who worked for a Hells Angels puppet club called Redd Alert. When will the violence stop? O Siem.

  1. as long as our society treats Indigenous People as second class citizens the murders will continue. as you outlined in a later post, an Indigenous woman was placed in a male jail. Our country has continually said it is O.K. to treat Indigenous people in a different manner.

    1. It is impossible to comprehend why on earth Indigenous women would be treated differently than anyone else. I just dont get it.

  2. Such a shame, so young, so beautiful, so important to so many people, yet so under reported, so forgotten by todays media machine. Live on Christine woods, in spirit, and in our hearts.
