Today marks 31 years since Jean LaChance was the victim of a homicide. Her death remains under investigation by the Prince Albert Police Service and her family, including her five children, continue to wait for answers about who is responsible.
On September 15, 1991 Jean Lachance’s body was discovered along the bush line in a field south of Victoria Hospital. Jean’s children were between the ages of four and 11 in 1991, and were suddenly and inexplicably left without their mother.
Someone knows what happened to Jean LaChance and police are hoping anyone with information will come forward.
Jean was last seen the evening of Saturday, September 15, 1991 at the former Coronet bar around closing time. At the time, there were multiple witnesses who were able to assist police in providing a timeline of Jean’s actions that weekend. Investigators continue to seek additional information that could help solve this case.

“Jean’s family has spent years waiting for answers about what happened,” said Sgt. Edwardsen. “We know someone has information and we need them to tell the truth so Jean’s family can finally have closure. They deserve to know the truth.”
