It’s been five years since Jacqueline Crazybull died in a random stabbing and on Monday, they marched in memory of the mother of nine.
Crazybull was stabbed to death by a stranger on July 11, 2007, during a spree of random violence that shocked police.
Sandra Many Feathers-O’Hara said that five people were stabbed on that day. “It was a group of what police said at that time was three black males in a sedan.”
Investigators offered names and photos of three suspects, but no arrests have ever been made.
Many Feathers O’Hara says that the day she learned Crazybull was killed was very difficult for her.
To cope, she says that family and friends walk from Rouleauville Square in the Beltline to the bench on 17 Ave.
They are choosing October 8 because it would have been Jackie’s 48th birthday.
They hope that the ‘Justice for Jackie” march will draw attention to Jackie’s case and bring in more tips so police can continue their investigation.
“We know that violence is an epidemic in our community and that aboriginal women are very much considered invisible women. We are not,” said Cheryle Chagnon Grey Eyes.
Crazybull’s family can’t help but wonder where the perpetrators of Jackie’s death are now. “Are they warm in their homes? Maybe having dinner with their families? Celebrating their children and their mothers and their sisters… and here we are, and we’re doing this,” Many Feathers-O’Hara said.
Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crimestoppers.
