Police say the suspect is an indigenous male, about 45-50 years old with a large build. He was wearing a dark coloured jacket and camouflage toque with a circle symbol on the front.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
The Manitoba children’s advocate is set to release a highly anticipated report today detailing the investigation into the death of Tina Fontaine.
The girl was 15 when she left her home on the Sagkeeng First Nation to reconnect with her birth mother in Winnipeg in June 2014.
Tina had interactions with child-welfare workers, police and the health system before her body was found wrapped in a duvet cover and weighed down by rocks in the Red River.
The report is expected to detail Tina’s involvement with social workers, a hospital and police in the weeks before her death.
Tina’s family members say while they will never get Tina back, they hope the report will make sure no other children fall through the cracks.
