If there are any new developments in the Destiny Rae Tom case, the RCMP aren’t sharing them.
Almost a year has passed since Tom’s death, but RCMP District Advisory NCO Cst. Lesley Smith suggested last week that police are still looking for answers in the case.
“The investigation into the death of Destiny Tom is ongoing and remains a priority for the North District Major Crimes Unit,” said Smith.
Tom’s badly-beaten body was found in the early morning hours of March 23, 2013 outside a home on the Nautley Indian Reserve near Fraser Lake. On April 17, RCMP announced that the 21-year-old woman died as a result of foul play.
Although an arrest was made shortly after discovery of Tom’s body, charges are yet to be laid in the case.
Anyone who may have information relating to Tom’s death is urged to contact either the Fraser Lake RCMP detachment (250-699-7777) or Crimestoppers (1-800-222-8477).
