I just found out that Jamie-Lynn Walsh, one of my friends from East Pictou, died Monday. I'd even seen her fairly recently - just three or four days before I moved to Antigonish for school. I bumped into her downtown at the Salvation Army store, and she had her baby girl with her. I can't remember the chil's name righ now, but she's less than a year old. Jamie-Lynn had been looking for baby clothes and stuff, and we had chatted for twenty minutes or so. Then I had to go because I had something else to do, though I can't remember what.

Her death is no longer suspicious, but now considered a homicide. I never even realised that the New Glasgow Police HAD a Major Crime unit, though of course they would. I had just never really thought about it before. Though it's unlikely, I hope there's a wake or something before I go back to school.

Rest in peace, Jamie-Lynn, and I hope they find out what the hell happened.

New Glasgow police have upgraded the suspicious death of a 21-year old New Glasgow woman to homicide status.
Few details are available at this time, but police have arrested a man and a woman in connection with the incident. The arrest was made after police executed an emergency search warrant on a nearby Nelson Street home.
The victim was found in a residence at 175 Temperance Street, after a 911 call came in at 7:13 Monday evening.
The two arrested have not been charged, nor were their ages or places of residence available in an interview with police.
Police can't confirm whether or not those arrested will appear in court, however they say more information will become available as the investigation progresses. New Glasgow Police Major Crime is investigating.
Police have also recovered an infant, the victim's daughter, less than one year old. Police can't say where the infant is being kept at this time.
Anyone with information is asked to call the New Glasgow Police Service at 755-8353 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

*hugs* It seems to be one thing after another for you. :(


Yeah, it does seem a bit like that. Either way, the murder of a school mate was not how I wanted to start off the new year.

Wow. That's... really unsettling and tragic. I hope they're able to give those who knew and loved her some clear closure at the very least.

Well, they've made an arrest. I'm going to put that article up a little bit later for anyone who's interested, and because The News doesn't have an archive on their website, so once it's the next day, the article is gone.

... D:

I... don't know what to say. ;-; That's horrible. *Offers internet hugs* *Also offers hot chocolate and ice cream*

Thanks. Don't worry about not knowing what to say - I don't either.

This is rather unfair. This is the second death you've had to experience in less than 4 months. I'm sorry about this.

Unfortunately, life isn't fair, or else she wouldn't be dead. Thank you for your sympathy.

It just make me angry. You are a good person. You don't deserve to go through twice in such a short amount of time. I'm so sorry.
