RCMP Continue Investigation Into Geddes Homicide

Wednesday, August 13, 2008 at 12:53



Today is the third anniversary of the disappearance and subsequent homicide of an Aboriginal woman.


The RCMP’s Historical Case Unit in Regina and Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers are using the occasion to request the assistance of the public in the ongoing investigation into the murder of Melanie Geddes.


Geddes was last seen alive on August 13th, 2005 while attending a gathering at a home in the 900 block of Robinson Street in Regina.


According to the RCMP, the other people who were with her thought she had left to return to her residence a short distance away — but she never returned home.


Geddes was reported missing to Regina police the following day.


On December 20th of that year, Geddes’ remains were found on top of a river embankment in an open hay field in the Qu’Appelle valley north of Regina.


Investigators say they have conducted a number of interviews, following up on tips received in this ongoing investigation.


But the RCMP, along with the Geddes family, are asking the public to provide more information that could assist in the investigation.


Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the RCMP Regina Historical Case Unit at (306) 780-6888, any RCMP or police detachment, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (*8477 on the SaskTel Mobility Network).
