|Homicide Case in Limbo|
|Monday, 16 July 2012 10:32|
Investigators are a little bit stuck trying to solve a 5-year old murder case, though they are still actively investigating.
The body of 48 year old Jeanette Chief, of the Onion Lake First Nation, was found by a fisherman under a bridge in a rural area about 16 kilometers north of Lloydminster, back on June 6th, 2007.
Chief had last been seen about 4 days before that at a Lloydminster bar.
Constable Tyler Hadland with the Historical Case Unit of the Saskatoon R-C-M-P says they recently got back some bad news from the forensic lab.
He'd been hoping that new technology in D-N-A testing would result in a breakthrough, but even with newer testing methods the sample did not prove useful.
Hadland also says the latest media release, which was issued in late 2011, did not turn up a single tip from the public.
Anyone with information the case has been asked to call Crimestoppers, or Hadland directly at Saskatoon R-C-M-P.
