RCMP officers are canvassing Thompson and taking additional statements from people this week in an effort to turn up more information about the whereabouts and activities of 29-year-old Bobbie Lynn Moose in the weeks leading up to her violent death last October.
A Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation member, Moose was found dead in a mostly empty lot on Nelson Road in Thompson by a member of the public Oct. 17. She was last seen by family members two-and-a-half weeks earlier at Thompson’s Walmart on Oct. 1.
To date over 90 RCMP officers have participated in the investigation of Moose’s homicide, speaking to 1,500 people, taking statements from 190 of them, and obtaining 52,560 hours of video surveillance from 64 locations in Thompson. Police have also distributed more than 4,000 pamphlets requesting more information to every residence in Thompson, placed posters and billboards about Moose in Thompson and other northern detachments, aired pleas in Cree and English on radio stations in Thompson and surrounding First Nations and distributed 1,000 Cree pamphlets in Thompson and other communities.
“Our efforts to find the person or persons responsible for taking Bobbie’s life will not diminish,” said Cpl. Morgan Page, the RCMP’s lead Major Crime Services investigator for this homicide. “We will continue to do everything we can to solve this homicide but we need the help of the public. If you know anything about what happened to Bobbie, please contact the RCMP.”
Anyone with information about Moose’s activities and whereabouts between Oct. 1 and Oct. 17, 2019 can call Thompson RCMP at 204-677-6909 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477. Tips can also be submitted online at www.manitobacrtimestoppers.com.
