A family from Beardy’s and Okemasis’ Cree Nation is asking for the public’s help in providing information regarding their loved-one’s death.
The body of Aaron Gamble was discovered in a dumpster in the 2300 block of 17th Street West in Saskatoon on March 24.
“He was a very kind and compassionate person, and he was friendly to everybody that he met, and he always had a smile on his face. My brother was well educated; he graduated, he went to university, and he graduated in May of 1996 with his bachelor’s of education degree; he taught high school after that for many years,” said Gambles’ sister, Emilia Greyeyes, “Growing up, he was a very protective brother; he was always looking out for me because it was just him and me, and we always wished we had more siblings, but we weren’t dealt that card, but he and I were as close as can be growing up; he was an all-around nice person; he did not deserve what happened.”
The family will be taking part in a “Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons” walk in their community on Friday to help raise awareness. “I am going to take it upon myself, with the flyers, to go into Saskatoon and drop off those flyers at different drop-off centres so they can hand them out for us if they will allow it,” said Greyeyes. “Our family is going to advocate; that is my determination because I am his only sibling. Because it was just him and me, I am going to, with the help of my family and his stepchildren, advocate until we get justice for him and until the people who did that to him are held responsible.”
The Saskatoon Police Service Major Crimes Section as well as Gamble’s family are asking that anyone with information on Gamble’s death contact SPS at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
