Woman dies a violent death at a women's shelter


Edmonton Sun, 2003 02 09, p.3

Woman dies at city shelter

A dead woman in her 40s was found covered in blood in a downtown women's shelter yesterday, say cops.

"It's basically a suspicious death," Sgt. Pat Morphy said.

Morphy said cops are "leaning toward" the death being a suicide, but are still waiting for autopsy results.

EMS Supt. Rob Sharman said emergency crews were called to the Women's Emergency Accommodation Centre, near 96 Street and 101A Avenue, around 9:45 a.m. about a woman with lacerations.

Sharman said paramedics found the woman in her 40s dead on scene.

"She had several wounds," he said.

Cops said the woman had a large slash wound to an arm.

Sharman said EMS secured the scene and called the police, who arrived about 10:30 a.m.

Bernadette Swan, a staff supervisor at the shelter, said she couldn't comment about the death last night.

  • DVStats.org a search engine, aggregating research that examines the impact and extent of domestic violence upon male victims. (Off-site)

    This search facility equates domestic violence to intimate partner violence between men and women in relationships.  It does not provide information on violence between homosexuals, siblings or violence against family members other than heterosexual partners and spouses, such as infanticide, child abuse or violence against elderly in families.

    The primary purpose of the site is to shift public perceptions of such violence away from political ideology, and instead toward objectively verifiable scientific research.
