27 year old Kelly Morrisseau was killed on Décember 10th, 2006. She was found in the early morning by a man walking his dog, in a parking lot (P3) in Gatineau Park, north of the intersection of Promenade de la Gatineau and Gamelin street, in Hull, Québec.. She was naked, lying in a pool of blood, clinging to her life. She died from a massive hemorrhage due to multiple stab wounds inflicted by a sharp object. She was taken to the hospital where she died a few hours later.
Kelly was last seen alive around 4am, the morning of her murder, leaving a Montfort Street apartment in Vanier, an area of Ottawa, in Ontario, which is directly on the border of Gatineau, Québec. Police say she was with a man, and was seen getting into his car, possibly a 1985 to 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera or Calais.The police released a sketch of this man.
Items belonging to Kelly and evidence were found on Rue des Frênes, in Gatineau (Hull sector) (near boulevard du Plateau) and behind Starcité Cinéma, at 115 boulevard du Plateau in Gatineau (Hull sector). So police believe the suspect drove around in that sector, and likely stepped out of his vehicle more than once in the early hours of Dec. 10.
Kelly was originally from Sagkeeng First Nations in Manitoba. She lived in Ottawa at the time of her murder. She was the mother of 3 children, and pregnant 7 months, when she was murdered. Kelly was known by authorities to have been involved in drugs and prostitution. She was working on turning her life around in order to regain custody of her 3 children. Evidence indicates that she may have exchanged sex for money with the suspect, and that he may have sollicited other women before or after the murder.
Two Ottawa area organizations, Sun Youth and Crime Stoppers, are jointly offering a $12,000 reward to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the murder.
