Project KARE looking for help from the public in the investigation into the death of Annette Holywhiteman
Project KARE is hoping the public will be able to assist them in the investigation into the death of Annette Holywhiteman.
On March 22, 2012, the Office of the Edmonton Medical Examiner confirmed that the human remains found on a rural property near Westlock were those of Annette Holywhiteman. Investigators in the case consider the circumstances around her death to be suspicious.
The identification process began in November, 2010 after hunters found a human skull and reported their findings to the Westlock RCMP. The process of confirming a positive identification involved the combined efforts of the Edmonton Medical Examiner’s Office, the RCMP National Forensic Assessment Centre, the Edmonton RCMP Forensic Identification Services, Westlock RCMP, Edmonton Police Service Missing Persons Unit and Project KARE.
Annette Holywhiteman, a woman of Aboriginal descent, was a resident of Edmonton. She was born on January 21, 1968. When she was last seen, Annette was 5’7″ tall, and weighed 140 pounds. She had brown hair and brown eyes.
Police were familiar with Annette Holywhiteman as she was known to live a high-risk lifestyle. She was the reported missing to the Edmonton Police Service in April of 2009 and police believe she was last seen in the Edmonton area in the late summer of 2008.
Project “KARE” is an investigational unit originally created with the highest priority to examine the deaths of several “High Risk Missing Persons” who were found in rural areas surrounding the City of Edmonton. The project has since expanded to include cases throughout Alberta that are investigating missing or murdered people who lived high risk lifestyles.
Anyone with information that might assist police in investigating the circumstances of Annette Holywhiteman’s death is asked to call the toll free Project KARE tip line at 1-877-412-KARE (5273) or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
