(GREENSTONE, ON) – We are receiving numerous reports of a strong police presence in Greenstone today, the likely result of a stabbing.
Residents in the area have reported to TRCCTB.COM that the two suspects are 18-year-old Kennedie Towageshig (pictured left) and 37-year-old Cori-Lynn Onabigon (pictured right).
On the 3rd of December, 2018, at 01:52 am the Greenstone Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a report of a stabbing on the First Nation Territory of Long Lake 58. Police attended a residence to find a male party with multiple stab wounds to his hands and torso. The victim was transported to hospital to be treated for his wounds.
Investigation revealed that the victim had been involved in an altercation with another subject at a local residence. A person of interest was located in the near vicinity on foot and subsequently arrested. The scene has been secured and is being processed by the OPP Forensic Identification Unit. The victim is being flown to Thunder Bay for further evaluation.
Towageshig appeared in a Thunder Bay bail court this morning via video from the Greenstone OPP detachment.
Her Worship, Justice of the Peace Anna Gibbons was presiding along with Crown Attorney Trevor Jukes, and defence lawyer Ron Poirier.
She was charged with the following criminal code offences:
- Aggravated assault
- Assault causing bodily harm
Poirier immediately requests a remand to next Monday, so that he may get more information as the case develops, in hopes of setting a date for a bail hearing. He says that these are “very serious charges”.
The Crown requests a “no-contact” order on Towageshig, prohibiting her from contacting the victim and co-accused.
Towgeshig was ordered to remain in jail until at least Monday, where she will have another swing at getting released.
The victim is in hospital at the moment with serious injuries.
Onabigon’s paperwork did not make it to court in time to be heard today, it will be brought before the courts tomorrow.
Citizen reports have told us that this incident unfolded in Longlac.
Anyone with photos of the police presence at the residence is asked to email them to firstname.lastname@example.org – we will always keep you anonymous.
The accused is currently being held in custody for a bail hearing later this date. This investigation is under the direction of the Greenstone OPP Crime Unit.
