Story of Brandy Vittrekwa

Brandy Vittrekwa, 17, belonged to a close-knit family and lived with her mother and brother in Whitehorse, Yukon.


On Dec. 8, 2014, her body was found on a walking trail in the city. Two months later Whitehorse RCMP told the Vittrekwa family they had someone in custody and in April 2015 a 15-year-old male was charged with second-degree murder in her death.


He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to two years in jail and one year of community supervision on June 16, 2016.
