Story of Brittany Bearspaw

Brittany Bearspaw, 16, was found dead on the Trans-Canada Highway near Morley, Alta. on Jan. 1, 2006.

An Alberta medical examiner determined her immediate cause of death as “multiple blunt force injuries” and the manner of death as undetermined. RCMP say it was a hit and run.

Her parents, Geraldine Bearspaw and John Sedo, say police told them it might have been suicide. They say RCMP misplaced valuable evidence in the case, but police say there is no mention of that in their file.
