A 25-year old woman has died from injuries related to an alleged assault reported early Monday morning in Whitehorse, police said Monday afternoon.

It sounds all to familiar, no suspects, no charges, no justice. How do the same people go around hurting, killing, destroying families and lives.
Enough Now!

Maybe our Yukon police force needs to go back to training for major crimes. So many murders and nothing solved ..... it’s like the public doesn’t expect anything to be solved anymore and would be surprised if anything were to be solved . How is it possible that NOTHING is being solved by Whitehorse police .

I'm so tired of these non stop going on murders in the Yukon territory ....like, is the people losing it so bad you have to take a life and for what ? What will that change? And the justice system has to start getting tougher on the penalty's in the yukon .
