Author Topic: A list of murders investigated by Alberta RCMP Jurisdictions 2006  (Read 11666 times)

I came across this list when doing more research for Ruth Degayo.

2006 was the year we saw the disappearance of Stephanie Stewart but she is listed here as a homicide investigation.
Theresa Innes was murdered in 2006 and Thomas Svekla was convicted of her murder although he was only convicted of 2nd degree murder. Theresa Innes' murder was investigated by Project Kare but is listed here as investigated by Ft Saskatchewan detachment.
Bonnie Jack was also murdered in 2006, found just days after Theresa. Her murder is being investigated by Strathcona RCMP according to her list. Again Project KARE is investigating her murder. Is this a cooperative effort then between Kare and the detachments or is this list wrong on those cases?

So this means murders outside Edmonton Calgary Medicine Hat and cities with there own police.

That is a lot of murders for what would be less then a million people.
