Alleged serial killer case prompts tip line
A tip line has been set up as part of the Winnipeg police investigation into alleged serial killer Shawn Lamb.
Police have charged Lamb, 52, with three counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of three aboriginal women — Tanya Nepinak, 31, Carolyn Sinclair, 25, and Lorna Blacksmith, 18 — all of whom disappeared in the last year.
Sinclair's body was found in a dumpster behind an apartment complex on Notre Dame Avenue in March, while Blacksmith's body was found in a yard on Simcoe Street two weeks ago.
The body of Nepinak, who went missing last September, has yet to be found but police believe she is dead.
Police are not ruling out further charges and are talking with forces in other provinces to see if Lamb may be connected to cases elsewhere.
Police in at least two other Canadian provinces — Quebec and Alberta — have said they are probing possible links to unsolved cases in their communities.
In addition to the tip line, anyone with information on the case can also contact Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
