COLD CASE Dorothy Georgina Abel

Dorothy Georgina Abel

She was medevaced to the Royal Alexander Hospital in Edmonton until she tragically passed away in 2000

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories - In July 1996, 39 year old mother Dorothy Abel was assaulted which led her to remain in a coma for four years at Royal Alexander Hospital in Edmonton until she tragically passed away in 2000.

When the MMIW (Murdered & Missing Indigenous Women) inquiry started occurring in Canada, Dorothy's family asked police to provide records of the investigation into her death. They were floored to find that all records related to the investigation were missing or destroyed. No arrests have ever been made in Dorothy's case and her murder remains unsolved.

She left behind 5 children. Today she has 5 beautiful grandchildren and 5 grown children.

May Dorothy rest in presence and may her family and community receive justice.
