Jun 14, 2019
Parents held their children’s hands. Men in the community prayed. And others wore purple as they walked side by side, through Natuashish on Thursday to remember Bernice Rich and all other missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
Rich died at 23, when Gordon Milley choked her, then dragged her body into the woods in Sheshatshiu, where she was later discovered.
The walk for missing and murdered women and girls was dedicated to Rich, who was killed six years ago Thursday.
