Murdered Mi’kmaq woman’s remains returned to family

The family of a murdered Mi’kmaq woman will now be able to lay her to rest beside her mother.

They are also hoping this will encourage someone to come forward with information about the killing of Tanya Jean Brooks who was found beside a Halifax school in 2009. Because she was murdered, police witheld part of her brain as evidence…but now they have returned it to the family and a smudging ceremony was held.
