Thirty Years Have Passed Since the Homicide of Jean LaChance
On September 15, 1991 Jean Lachance’s body was discovered along the bush line in a field south of Victoria Hospital. She had been the victim of a homicide.
Jean had five children between the ages of four and 11 who were left without a mother on that Saturday in 1991. Those children are now adults and continue to wait to hear the truth about what happened to their mother.
They deserve to know the truth.
Three decades have now passed, and Jean’s family and loved ones are hoping the person responsible for her death can find the courage to do the right thing and come forward to police.
Jean was last seen that Saturday night at the former Coronet bar at closing time. There were multiple witnesses who were able to assist police in providing a timeline of Jean’s actions that weekend. The investigation into her homicide is ongoing and police continue to seek additional information that can help solve this case.
Sgt. Kathy Edwardsen with the Prince Albert Police Service’s Missing Persons and Historical Crimes unit continues to work with the family of Jean LaChance to help find answers and the truth about what happened.
“Somebody out there knows the truth and we hope they will do the right thing and come forward. The family and friends of the missing and murdered cannot rest until they know the truth.” Sgt. Edwardsen said. “They deserve to know what happened.”
