Police are still looking for those responsible for a bizarre series of stabbings five years ago that left one woman dead and four others injured.
Jacqueline Clara Crazybull was 44 when she died on Wednesday, July 11 2007 after being attacked near a liquor store on 17 Ave. S.W.
The attack happened shortly after 4:00 a.m. and Crazybull managed to walk to a nearby bench at a bus stop, where she collapsed.
Paramedics rushed her to hospital but she died and became Calgary’s 15th homicide of the year.
In less than an hour, four other people were stabbed across the city and at the time police were looking for a group of three or four black men, who were driving a small, light-coloured sedan.
It is believed that the suspects first engaged the victims in conversation and police say that the victims were not known to each other.
After five long years, police, Crazybull’s family, and friends, are still looking for whoever killed her.
Crazybull’s common-law husband Earl Thiessen says the anniversary of her murder is difficult.
“It’s senseless. There won't be closure cause its always there cause of the way she was taken, and it was just a senseless murder right?” said Thiessen.
Investigators believe they know who stabbed Crazybull but they don’t have enough information to lay charges or make arrests.
“Our investigation still needs more and we're coming forward now asking the public for more help. We're not in a position yet where we can lay a charge but we're hoping soon, to be there,” said)) S/Sgt. Grant Miller of the CPS Homicide Unit
Anyone with information on the unsolved murder of Jacqueline Crazybull is asked to call Calgary Crime Stoppers.
