Annual ‘Justice for Jackie’ walk remembers victim killed on 17th Avenue

CALGARY – It’s been eight years since Jackie Crazy Bull was killed in a stabbing rampage on the corner of 17th Avenue and 11th Street SW.

She’s gone, but not forgotten. Crazy Bull’s family, friends and supporters walked for justice Saturday afternoon, along the same spot where Jackie fell victim to the random stabbing.

The 2007 murder remains unsolved. Police allegedly are aware of the identity of the killers but no one has been charged with Crazy Bull’s murder. Four other people were also attacked that night but Jackie was the only one killed.

Jackie’s son, who was 5-years-old at the time of Jackie’s death, shared a traditional dance at the walk, in honour of his mother.

Organizers say the annual walk also is to raise awareness and honour the hundreds of missing and murdered aboriginal women across the country.

“We walk for justice not only for Jackie, but for all those sisters, daughters, mothers and grandmother’s tragically taken from us. No more stolen sisters,” said Jackie’s sister, Sandra Manyfeathers (Crazy Bull).
