Chapter 5 Part The murder of Candace Derksen and the case of Mark Edward Grant

Candace Derksen disappeared on Nov. 30, 1984. Her abduction shocked Winnipeg. 

Volunteer searchers came out en masse to look for a girl with pale freckles and brown hair. After nearly seven weeks, the search ended on Jan. 17, 1985, with a grim discovery. The girl’s frozen body was found tied up inside a machine shed just 500 metres from her home. 

Candace’s wrists and ankles were bound with twine. Her killer left her to die of hypothermia and exposure.
Years later no one has been successfully tried and convicted in her case.  It is widely believed her attacker was Mark Edward Grant.
