MAP: Unsolved cases of missing and murdered aboriginal women in Manitoba

The number and nature of Manitoba’s unsolved cases of missing and murdered aboriginal women have always been difficult to pin down. With the help of research by Ottawa doctoral student Maryanne Pearce, the Free Press has compiled a detailed accounting.

Yellow markers in the map below indicate missing women; red markers indicate murdered women.

Click on any marker for more details on the case.  Use the + and - controls at left (or pinch on a touchscreen, or scroll on your mouse) to zoom in and out of the map, or click and drag on the map to move around.
