WINNIPEG — Monday marks one year since 15-year-old Tina Fontaine’s body was pulled out of a Winnipeg river.
The teenage girl was found dead, wrapped in a plastic bag, in the Red River last summer. Her killer has still not been found.
Fontaine’s death sparked international headlines and triggered a movement called Drag the Red, in which volunteers search the Red River for clues in cases of missing and murdered aboriginal women.
Friends and family unveiled Fontaine’s headstone Monday at the place where she’s buried in Sagkeeng First Nation.
