Missing Keewaywin teen found dead
The body of a missing 17-year-old Keewaywin youth has been found floating in the McIntyre Floodway near the McIntyre Centre.
Thunder Bay Police reported the discovery of a Native male in his late teens Nov. 10 after a man walking along a path along the Floodway spotted the body floating near the railway trestle bridge adjacent to the rear of the McIntyre Centre.
Kyle Morriseau was first reported missing Oct. 30 by Thunder Bay Police, who stated at the time he was last seen Oct. 26 near DFC.
Thunder Bay Police later reported that he had been seen at two other locations in Thunder Bay.
Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School held a gathering Nov. 11 to break the news to Morriseau's fellow students.
Nishnawbe Aski Nation Grand Chief Stan Beardy, NAN Deputy Grand Chief Terry Waboose, KO education director Goyce Kakegamic, Keewaywin Chief Joe Meekis, and Northern Nishnawbe Education Council reps were in attendance at the assembly.
A crisis team was also at the school all afternoon to help students cope with the news of Morriseau's death.
