Winnipeg Police Won't Search Prairie Green Dump for Two Victims

The families of the victims are asking for help from the federal government in this search.

Winnipeg police will not search the Prairie Green dump for the bodies of Morgan Harris and Marcedes Myran, victims of a suspected serial killer. The families of the victims say they feel abandoned by the authorities.

Winnipeg Police Inspector Cam MacKid explained that a search of the Prairie Green landfill, north of Winnipeg, would be virtually impossible, at a conference press release on Tuesday.

“ The service made the very difficult decision, to admit that it was technically not possible to drive research on this site. »

— Winnipeg Police Service Inspector Cam MacKid

Winnipeg Police believe the remains of the two Long Plain First Nation women are among trash and debris dumped by 10,000 garbage trucks in 34 days.

When dumped, the waste is also mixed and compacted throughout the day , specifies the inspector. The rubbish is then piled into holes 12 meters deep.

Police estimate that 1,500 tons of animal remains are mixed in with other trash. Cam McKid therefore thinks the chances of finding the bodies are slim.

“Nothing is impossible, but even if remains were found, will we be able to distinguish them from animal remains?

—Cam MacKid, Winnipeg Police Service Inspector

The inspector wanted to highlight the efforts of the police. It is hard to be accused of a lack of commitment to our research. Our members have worked hard on this file, he said, before expressing his support for the families of the victims.

Remains of another of Jeremy Skibicki's alleged victims, Rebecca Contois, were found at another Winnipeg landfill, the Brady Road landfill. In this case, the police explained, only three to five hours had passed between the arrival of the body in the landfill and the complete cessation of its operation. It still took weeks to find his body.

Prairie Green junkyard terrain makes searches very difficult.

Unlike the Brady landfill, the Prairie Green debris is not equipped with a GPS chip. The trucks are also not equipped with a video system, as Cam McKid explains. With the GPS, we can follow the route of the debris, which helps to direct the search. At Prairie Green, we were always looking for a starting point.

Cambria and Kerra Harris, the daughters of Morgan Harris, spoke in front of the House of Commons in Ottawa. They said that, once again, the indigenous community was going to have to fend for themselves.

 Our indigenous women, brothers and sisters must come here, and we must shout and raise the voice pleading for change and justice for our people. It's unfair, said Cambria Harris.

Cambria Harris, daughter of Morgan Harris, claims police must do more to ensure that his mother's remains are brought home and that the federal government must act to address the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

The two daughters of the victim say they are shocked by the decision not to search for their mother's remains. How can you even conceive the idea of ​​leaving them there?, asked Kerra Harris.
