Remains Found, Arrest Made In Daleen Bosse Case

Friends and family of the Muskego family broke down earlier today during court proceedings for the man charged with the murder of Daleen Bosse.


30-year-old Douglas Hales made his first appearance this morning in Saskatoon Provincial Court in front of a packed courtroom of Muskego family and friends.


The resident of White Fox was taken into custody in a parking lot on Circle Drive East at around noon yesterday.


Hales is charged with first-degree murder — as well as causing an indignity to human remains by setting her on fire.


When that charge was read, Bosse’s mother screamed and began sobbing uncontrollably.


Many left the courtroom in groups, holding onto each other and crying.


For each of the four years Bosse has been missing, her parents have held a walk from the Onion Lake First Nation to Saskatoon to raise awareness about missing and murdered Aboriginal women.


At the time of her disappearance, the 25-year-old Bosse was living in Saskatoon with her husband and three-year-old daughter, and was attending university.


She was last seen at a Saskatoon nightclub on May 18th, 2004.


Saskatoon police have revealed that her remains were found in an isolated, bushy area.
