Police investigate second weekend death at Bloodvein First Nation

  • Print

A second man died over the weekend at Bloodvein First Nation.

Timothy Goosehead was found stabbed outside his home and died of his injuries on Sunday, Bloodvein chief Roland Hamilton told the Winnipeg Free Press.

Goosehead's body was found outside a home in the community on the east side of Lake Winnipeg, Hamilton said.

"He got stabbed but they're still investigating," Hamilton said in a telephone interview.

Goosehead died just one day after the death of Cliff Malnyk, 52. His body was found inside a burned-out home around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

The RCMP said the death is being investigated as a homicide.

At least two men are being sought in connection with Malnyk's death as his daughter Melanie Bushie, 22, was attacked when she went to her dad's home after midnight. As she pounded on the door, two men ran out with one swinging what she described to the Free Press as a sword. The home was on fire at the time Bushie was attacked. She was able to get away in her truck, as the men smashed the windows, and go for help.

Bushie suffered a deep gash in her head and bruised, bloodied hands from blocking the blows from her attackers.

It is not known if the two incidents are connected.
