Loved ones mark 5 years since teen found dead in Winnipeg
WINNIPEG — A somber anniversary was marked in the North End Wednesday as loved ones gathered to remember Hillary Wilson.
The 18-year-old was last seen alive at the corner of Selkirk Avenue and McKenzie Street in 2009.
On Wednesday evening a few dozen people held a vigil there to keep Hillary’s memory alive.
“She was very loved and is very loved still,” said Gwen Wilson, Hillary’s mother. “We miss her.”
Hillary’s body was found on Aug. 20, 2009, in a field near the North Perimeter and Highway 59.
Her murder was never solved.
“I know there is someone out there who knows what happened, not just to Hillary, but there are so many (others) out there that want answers too,” said Gwen Wilson.
