WINNIPEG -- Manitoba RCMP said a guard that last worked at the Pukatawagan RCMP detachment nearly two weeks ago has now been arrested and charged with second-degree murder in relation to the death of a 22-year-old woman.
On Monday, RCMP arrested and charged 22-year-old August Thunder Caribou of Pukatawagan with second-degree murder. The charge has not been proven in court.
This comes after RCMP found the body of a 22-year-old woman in a wooded area in the community of Pukatawagan on June 26, shortly before 8 p.m.
The woman was pronounced dead, and Major Crimes Services and Forensic Identification Services immediately began an investigation, RCMP said in a news release.
The investigation is ongoing.
