Story of Edith Angalik

Edith was Inuit from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. She was beaten to death by her abusive partner.


They had been drinking at a friend’s house on November 21, 2014, when her partner left around 3 a.m. to find another party.


When he returned an hour later, he found Edith with another man. He beat the woman unconscious and was later spotted dragging her lifeless body down the street in -30 C temperatures.
