Contract Killings


Wednesday, 27 July 2011

23 homicide victims this year already, Winnipeg has surpassed last year’s total number of murders, when there were 22.

Two of those cases remain unsolved, both of which involve young mothers who were found dead in their homes. They are added to a string of unsolved murders in Winnipeg.


July 19 — The body of Cara Lynn Hiebert, 31, was found by construction workers doing renovations on her Redwood Avenue duplex. Police said it appeared the mother of four was physically assaulted.

May 14 — The body of Gina Swanson was discovered by her father, a retired Winnipeg police officer, inside her Edderton Avenue home after concerned colleagues at the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission made calls when the single mother didn’t show up to work. Police haven’t specified how she died other than saying the victim was “physically assaulted to the upper body.”


May 25 — Kyle Earl, 16, was shot and killed when armed suspects sprayed his family’s West End home with gunfire at 646 Toronto St. The unsolved slaying has suspected gang ties.

Oct. 10 — Tiffany Johnston, 21, was shot at a home in the 600-block of Selkirk Avenue about 4:20 a.m. Police say the mother of two was an innocent victim caught in a hail of bullets.

Nov. 1 — Daniel Benjamin Kachkan, 34, was found dead in his North Point Douglas home. The former gang member was killed in what a street source said was an “execution-style” slaying.


July 25 — Cheryl Robert, 50, was shot and killed when someone opened fire at a wedding reception at a Main Street hall.

Sept. 30 — Ken Catcheway, 34, was stabbed while doing renovations at a Gallagher Avenue home.
