The Regina Police Service has arrested and charged a 26 year-old Regina female in connection with the first homicide of this year. The victim, Keesha Cree BITTERNOSE, was discovered, deceased, on January 5, 2020.
This investigation began when police were dispatched to a residence in the 1500 block of Cameron Street around 11:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 5, 2020. The information, in the initial stages, indicated there was a female at that address who appeared to be deceased. Police and EMS arrived to find a female, later identified as 29 year-old Keesha Cree BITTERNOSE, deceased. In the early stages, police secured the scene, requested the Coroner and began what would become a homicide investigation into the death of BITTERNOSE. Continued investigation by the Regina Police Service Major Crimes Unit, in conjunction with the Saskatchewan Coroner’s Service, and supporting units of RPS, led to the arrest on February 11, 2020 of a 26 year-old Regina female. This matter is still under investigation with additional charges anticipated.
