Tomorrow is the third anniversary of the murder of Tanya Brooks and the Halifax Regional Police/RCMP Integrated Major Crime Unit continues to investigate the case.
Tanya’s body was discovered in a trench along the west side of St. Patrick’s-Alexandra School on Monday, May 11, 2009 at 2:17 p.m. Investigators were able to trace her movements until approximately 9 p.m. on Sunday, May 10 and urge anyone who witnessed anything around the school after that time to contact police. Investigators believe that Tanya knew her assailant(s) and that there are people who know what happened who haven’t spoken to police.
On Friday, members of the Mi’Kmaq community are marking the anniversary of Tanya’s death with a march to stop violence against Aboriginal women. The walk will begin at the Mi’Kmaq Native Friendship Centre located at 2158 Gottingen Street, Halifax at 10 a.m.
