Story of Alannah Cardinal

Alannah Jamima Cardinal, 20, had recently received an acceptance letter from Portage College in Alberta when she disappeared on July 16, 2016.


Her body was recovered nine days later near her home community of Goodfish Lake, Alta., a Cree community about 185 kilometers northeast of Edmonton. Cardinal’s death was classified a suicide by the coroner, but her family doesn’t believe she took her own life.


St. Paul RCMP handled her case.
