WINNIPEG – It’s a high-tech approach to try and catch a killer.
On October 17, 1986, 15-year-old Kerrie Ann Brown was murdered. She was last seen with a group of friends at a party in Thompson.
Now, the Manitoba RCMP Twitter feed has been taken over by Kerrie Ann as though it were her own account, but it will be her timeline back in 1986.
“Her friend went out with her and then her friend realized she had forgotten something inside the house,” explains her brother, Trevor. “So her friend, Nicole, went back inside the house and when she came back out, Kerrie was gone. A day and a half later, her body was discovered north of the city. She had been brutally murdered.”
Brown says this is the first time the RCMP has done something like this.
He hopes someone will come forward to give his family the answers they have longed for.
“My dad never wanted to move out of our home. I think in his heart of hearts, he wanted to stay here until he got the answers he was after. He wasn’t going to leave this house and the memories that were here prior to her death.”
Brown says his Mom died in 2002 not knowing who killed her daughter, and he has since moved back to Thompson to look after his dad.
