From the Winnipeg Free Press this week:
“Family members say they received a call that morning from a woman they knew. She said Dominique had allegedly suffered an overdose and was lying on a couch.
On Monday, police said officers responded to a medical call Friday at about 6:30 a.m. The woman was rushed to hospital in critical condition. She later died.
Police said the woman had suffered “severe upper-body injuries” but they didn’t release other details about her death.”
An active homicide investigation has been launched, and Winnipeg are publicly requesting that anyone with information please contact them,
The details of this case at this point since Dominique McCann’s death are pretty much I*D*E*N*T*I*C*A*L to the known circumstances of my own son’s case at the same point, except that instead of dying shortly after arriving at the hospital in critical condition, Henry lived for THIRTY EIGHT DAYS, during which he – and we – asked repeatedly for someone from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office or the DA’s office to PLEASE come to the hospital and speak to him and us, and take his information, and his cell phone, which they refused to do.
In this case, the Winnipeg police are using the media to ask the public for leads in the days immediately following this teen’s death, while in the first days after Henry’s death, Knox County Sheriff Jimmy “JJ” Jones instead used the media in a bizarre, insensitice and unprecedented way to make it clear that he was hostile to our family, and that he had no intention of actually doing anything beyond what he claimed had already been done by his investigator.
“Nobody Deserves to Die Like This”
