Hillary Angel Wilson was found in a field off Highway 59 near the North Perimeter on August 20th, 2009. She was 18 years old.
“We miss her and I know there’s somebody out there that knows what happened,” said Gwen Wilson.
Police have not made any arrests in Hillary Wilson’s case.
Her family and friends gathered on Wednesday night to remember the teen, and call for the public to come forward with information. Around 30 people showed up to the vigil at Selkirk Avenue and McKenzie Street, where Wilson was last seen.
Gwen Wilson says she’s frustrated and angry that there have been no arrests in her daughter’s case.
“It’s five years already that I’ve been waiting for the police to tell me what happened and that they have somebody,” said Wilson.
RCMP estimate that there have been just under 1,200 murdered aboriginal women in Canada since 1980. The latest happened on Sunday in Winnipeg. The body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine was discovered in the Red River. Winnipeg Police are now searching for her killer.
