Memorial to missing woman, Thelma Krull, destroyed
A memorial to a missing woman has been damaged.
Friends and family of Thelma Krull are upset that a tribute they set up near Kildonan East Collegiate was destroyed sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Susan Dell, a friend and coworker of Krull’s, told CTV she visits the site every day.
“This morning when I was doing a drive-by, I saw all the flowers and that laying by the fence and saw that it was totally destroyed and kicked over. And purposely destroyed, it wasn't the wind or anything like that," said Dell.
She said it appears someone broke a picture frame and scattered flowers in a field, which she suspected was the work of kids who thought it was funny.
Krull went missing July 11 after she set out on a walk in north east Winnipeg. Her glasses were found in the field where the memorial was set up.
“This is where Thelma is to me,” said Dell of the field, which she often visits to meditate.
They plan to rebuild the memorial.
Next week is the four month anniversary of Krull’s disappearance and plans are in the works for a candlelight ceremony to honour the missing 57-year-old.
Her loved ones continue to urge anyone with information about her disappearance to come forward.
