Kerrie Ann Brown
File Number: 104200015


Thompson, Manitoba: The murder of Kerrie Ann Brown is one of the most infamous the province of Manitoba has ever seen.

The 15 year old had gone to a party with her friend the night of October 16th, 1986 where she had last been seen.

Kerrie had been waiting outside for her friend who was grabbing something she left in the house. By the time her friend returned, Kerrie was nowhere to be found.

Since then DNA tests in MB point in the direction that two people were involved in Kerrie's disappearance, but regardless of arrests being made after the fact, there was not enough physical evidence to hold anyone accountable.

Case Status: UNSOLVED
Condition: BODY FOUND BESIDE HER CAB
Location: Thompson, Manitoba, Canada
File Name: Who Did This?

Mellissa Ivy Chaboyer

File Number: 104200059

Thompson, Manitoba: Mellissa Ivy Chaboyer, 35, the mother of a 17-year-old son, drove for North Star Taxi in Thompson. She had worked part-time as a cab driver for about 20 years and worked full time with developmentally challenged adults.

Shortly before 1 a.m. on Saturday, November 26, 2005 another taxi driver found Ms. Chaboyer's body beside her cab in the City Centre Mall parking lot. An autopsy revealed that she had been stabbed to death.

Hundreds of Thompson residents attended a memorial ceremony in the in the parking lot that afternoon and a vigil was held in the evening.

Thompson's three taxi companies (North Star, Driftwood Nickel and Cliff's) shut down from 3 p.m. until 7 the next morning as drivers attended the vigil. Cabs were parked bumper to bumper around the lot so that attendees could warm up after standing in subzero temperatures. Several restaurants donated coffee.

"She was one of the gentlest drivers in the whole industry," said Jas Gills, manager of North Star Taxi. "If someone didn't have the money, she'd smile and say, 'pay later.' She never would have gotten into a dispute with someone."

Cab driving is riskier than police work. In fact, taxi drivers and police have the highest on-the-job risk of murder, according to a Statistics Canada study of occupation-related homicides from 2000 to 2010.

Of the two, the study says, taxi drivers were twice as likely as police officers to be a victim of homicide while working, which drivers say reflects the fact that they are seen as vulnerable targets.

"It's not a good feeling to have a gun to your head," said Santanu, 41, a cab driver who lives in Rogers Park. He said he's been robbed twice while working the night shift since becoming a licensed cab driver in 2000. "It did shake me up quite a lot for a few weeks."

A 2008 University of Illinois at Chicago survey found that 58.7 percent of Chicago cab drivers said they have been threatened, attacked and subjected to hostile racial comments. During physical attacks inside the cabs, guns were the weapons most used against drivers, followed by knives, according to survey results.

The combination of isolation, picking up strangers and carrying cash makes taxi drivers a target for criminals, crime experts said, particularly during the busy hours of 1 a.m., 2 a.m., and 3 a.m.

No charges have been laid in Mellissa's murder, and the case remains unsolved.

Case Status: UNSOLVED
Condition: FOUND DECEASED
Location: Thompson, Manitoba, Canada
File Name: Did You See Bobbie Lynn Moose?

Bobbie Lynn Moose

File Number: 104200144

On Thursday, October 17th, 2019, at 5:10 pm, Thompson RCMP received a report of a deceased female found at a location near Nelson Road in Thompson, Manitoba. The deceased was identified as Bobbie Lynn Moose from Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation. Her death was determined to be as a result of homicide. Ms. Moose was last seen at Walmart in Thompson on October 1st, 2019. She is described as 29 years old, indigenous, approximately 5' tall, weighing 110lbs and was last seen wearing a plain black winter coat over a grey North Face jacket with red trim and hood, black tights, and black boots.

More than a hundred family, friends and concerned citizens of Thompson gathered on Nelson Road Oct. 23 to remember Bobbie Lynn Lee Moose of Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation (NCN)

"We want to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Bobbie," said NCN vice-chief Cheryl Hunter-Moore at the vigil, attended by many friends Moose had come to know from the Thompson Homeless Shelter. "We all know that Bobby was a fearless and courageous woman." Thompson MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) of Manitoba said that statistics show that Moose was more likely to have her life end in violence because she was Indigenous.

"Indigenous women and girls are four times more likely to experience violence in their lifetime and 2.5 times more likely to have their lives cut short due to violence than non-Indigenous women and girls," she said. "I am not prepared to shrug off Bobbie's loss as an unfortunate random event."

"Somebody knows who took Bobbie's life away," said NDP Churchill-Keewatinook Aski MP-elect Niki Ashton. "We must make sure that people know they must come forward. We know that silence kills. There must be justice for Bobbie and there must also be a call to end the violence against women, against Indigenous women. As a woman, as a member of this community, what happened to Bobby sent a chill down my spine. This makes people here in Thompson feel unsafe. It shouldn't be like that. I appreciate that there's an investigation going on and we must continue to keep the pressure and ensure that that investigation goes as it should but we know that sometimes these investigations might take too long. The pressure must go on. We demand answers and we demand justice for Bobbie Moose, for her family, for NCN and for Thompson, for all our north." via Thompson Citizen

Anyone with information related to her death or her activities between October 1st and October 17th is asked to contact the Thompson RCMP Detachment at 204-677-6909 or submit an anonymous tip at 1 (800) 222-8477 (TIPS).
