Laurie Odjick is at a loss to explain what happened to her daughter Maisy and the teen’s best friend, Shannon Alexander.
They vanished on Sept. 6, 2008, from Alexander’s Maniwaki, Que., apartment outside of the Kitigan Zibi Anishnabeg First Nation, an Algonquin reserve about 145 kilometres north of Ottawa.
It is as if they disappeared off the face of the Earth, just like 600 other missing or murdered aboriginal women and girls from across Canada in the past 20 years . . .
