The persons who know and do nothing are just as guilty as the one who did the crime, imo. How can people live with themselves after harboring such a cruel secret and cause countless grief to loved ones?!

Have faith

You are right on SAP.  Those who know who murdered an innocent victim, and won't turn them in, have blood on their hands.  They may be a close relative of the killer--sister, brother, parent.  They may be a close friend.  But do they ever consider that their "loved one" is capable of killing other innocent victims?  Are they in such denial that they think that this was just one "mistake"?  Murdering an innocent person is not a mistake, regardless of the circumstances or the excuses.  Your loved one is a murderer, and he may be capable of doing it again.  Has he received psychological help?  Will you wait to turn him in after the next murder?  How bloody do your hands have to become before you stop him from killing?

Then there are the people who know who murdered an innocent victim, but are afraid to report him.  They may fear for their lives, and have been threatened to remain quiet.   I understand that, and this is a legitimate concern.  Trust me--you can give information to Crime Stoppers and remain anonymous to Police.  You just name the killer, and give any info that will help put him away, without implicating you as the source.  You don't have to go to court as a witness--you are totally unknown to everyone.  Crime Stoppers don't know who you are, let alone police.  Just do it.  You shouldn't have to carry this burden for the rest of your life.

Then there is the killer.  If you are truly remorseful and this is destroying your life, it is time to stop the pain and turn yourself in.  You need to put this right.  Man up and do the right thing.  It is time to end the 29 years of suffering for everyone.

You said it so well Have Faith.

It would be interesting to know who all knew who the perp was because if he was the one who phoned in a murder before Kerrie was discovered was real afraid, or perhaps the person saw or knew only and had nothing to do with it, probably the latter. I think now that calls probably can be traced better but I also believe it should not have been difficult to figure out who used the phone at Norway House ... was this a residence for homeless people?
Post # 125 on page 9 says it all, plus there seems to also be a combination of the same that Pandabear posted under Halifax regarding: Dead Wrong: Halifax's unsolved murders.

Here is the full article

Manitoba RCMP are using social media to give a voice to a teen girl who was found raped and murdered three decades ago, in hopes of finding new leads in a tragic cold case.

Kerrie Ann Brown, 15, was supposed to sleep over at her best friend Nicole’s house on Oct. 16, 1986. But at a party in Thompson, Man. that night, Kerrie’s ex-boyfriend showed up with a new girl. She left upset and never made it to the sleepover.

A pair of horseback riders found her body two days later on a trail north of the city. She had been sexually assaulted and her body poked with sticks.

“We’ve never stopped trying to find out who did this to Kerrie,” her brother, Trevor Brown, told CTV News Channel on Sunday from Thompson, Man.
“We’ve had our ear to the ground for three decades trying to find out who did this to Kerrie.

We won’t stop and I assure you we’re going to find the people who did this and they’re gonna be brought to justice.”

Sunday marks the 30-year anniversary of Kerrie’s death. Officers are issuing tweets from her point of view in English and French using the hashtag #kerrie, and have changed the account’s profile photo to include her picture.

“I want to talk about the day I was killed. I want people to know what happened to me. I want the killer caught #rcmpmb #kerrie,” read one of several tweets posted on Sunday.

“What you did to me that night destroyed my family & friends. I didn’t do anything wrong. I was a happy 15 year old girl.”

The tweets go beyond a straightforward appeal for information. Many include photos from the family, details about her last day alive, and personal information like the name of her stuffed bear.

Trevor hopes the unorthodox technique will jog the memory of someone who can help investigators.

“I think this would have been solved 30 years ago if social media existed then,” he said.

He believes people in the community have details that will help bring his sister’s killer to justice and help his family find some closure.

“Walk through the fear,” he pleaded. “We understand it was egregious, brutal. It’s hard to live with but it’s time to come forward.”

“There’s silence, but someone knows. Come forward. Stop being cowards. How are you able to keep what you did to me hidden?” #rcmpmb #kerrie

Thanks JB for posting the whole article.
Last night on The National they gave good coverage as well, so this went Canada wide. Twitter and FB also got covered.

They really need to speak again to the initial suspect and get some names from him. The initial suspect had Kerry's blood and hair on his T-shirt.

Since she was "poked with sticks", this screams youths (young and more than one) imo
