Mother of slain teen gives up hope
The mother of a girl found dead in a field on the outskirts of Winnipeg says she has given up hope for justice and will bury her daughter this weekend.
The body of Hillary Angel Wilson, 18, was found Aug. 20, 2009 on a dirt path in a sparsely populated area of East St. Paul, just northeast of the city limits.
While RCMP are treating her death as a homicide, they have never released how she was killed.
Hillary's funeral is Saturday, her mother, Gwen Wilson, said.
She said she's given up hope for any justice in the case and feels it's time to let her daughter go.
"When I finally was able to go into her room, it was very difficult for me," Wilson said. "I wanted to scream, wanted to cry. I did not believe that she was gone."
No arrests have been made in connection to Hillary's death.
Wilson said she's furious her daughter's killer is still at large.
"What kind of savage would to that to my daughter — my beautiful daughter. I don't see or understand how they can go on living with themselves," she said.
