News in Review Neil Stonechild: The Boy in the Snow

In 1990, a 17-year-old aboriginal boy was found frozen to death on the outskirts of Saskatoon. His name was Neil Stonechild. Right from the start some people suspected that members of the Saskatoon police force had something to do with his death. But it wasn’t until October 2004 that a public inquiry concluded that the teenager had been in the custody of two police officers the night he disappeared. In November 2004 the two constables were fired. This News in Review story looks at who Neil Stonechild was, and what the public inquiry had to say about the way he died – and the way police handled the case.
