Story of Adrienne Amikons

Adrienne Amikons was brutally murdered on December 18, 1997 by Jean Anne Rudski a woman whom her mother had met at the Peterborough Native Friendship Centre.


Adrienne was decapitated inside her home at the age of 14. Ms. Rudski often visited the Amikons’ home before the murder, but decided to drive back to her hometown of Alberta at the beginning of December.


She didn’t make it far before her car broke down and she ended up in a psychiatric hospital in Barrie which she was released from only days before the murder.
