The Serious Crime Unit of the Prince George RCMP has made a breakthrough in relation to a three-decade-old homicide investigation.
Last month, the unit entered into an investigation of found human remains located by a member of the public on Connaught Hill.
“With the assistance of the B.C. Coroners Service, the RCMP is now in a position to publicly confirm that the human remains located are those of Donna Charlie, the victim of a 1990 homicide. Though this initial investigation resulted in a conviction, it remained an open file with our Missing Persons Unit until such time as the last of the remains were located, stated Cpl. Jennifer Cooper.
The family of the victim has since been notified of this discovery.
