Mourners to attend funeral for armoured vehicle security guard in Edmonton

EDMONTON – The funeral for one of four armoured car security guards shot during a heist in Edmonton is being held today.

Michelle Shegelski was shot to death June 15 while she and her co-workers were refilling a bank machine at the University of Alberta.

Shegelski’s husband, parents and other family members say in a statement that they have received support from across the country.

They say their lives have been forever changed, but so have the lives of the people whom Shegelski touched.

Services have already been held for 39-year-old Eddie Rejano and 35-year-old Brian Ilesic, while Matthew Schuman remains in critical condition in hospital with head injuries.

One of the crew, Travis Baumgartner, was picked up at the Canada-U.S. border a day later and charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and robbery.
