Wabowden teen's death a homicide, police say

  • Print

RCMP have confirmed the death of a Wabowden teen is a homicide.

Heather Mallett, 14, went missing Wednesday night. By Thursday evening, her family's hopes were crushed when her older sister found her body on a trail in the northern community, about 660 kilometres north of Winnipeg.

RCMP said Saturday an autopsy was completed in Winnipeg, but they were mum on what caused Mallett's death.

Homicide investigators from the RCMP's serious crime unit along with a number of support units are aiding in the investigation.

Community members from Wabowden turned out en masse to look for Mallett. She was discovered near a trail in the community that wound between Wabowden's centre and a trailer park.
