Dorothy Georgina Abel

File Number: 104200135

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories - In July 1996, 39 year old mother Dorothy Abel was assaulted which led her to remain in a coma for four years at Royal Alexander Hospital in Edmonton until she tragically passed away in 2000.

When the MMIW (Murdered & Missing Indigenous Women) inquiry started occurring in Canada, Dorothy's family asked police to provide records of the investigation into her death. They were floored to find that all records related to the investigation were missing or destroyed. No arrests have ever been made in Dorothy's case and her murder remains unsolved.

She left behind 5 children. Today she has 5 beautiful grandchildren and 5 grown children.

May Dorothy rest in presence and may her family and community receive justice.

If you have any information regarding the assault and eventual death of Dorothy Abel, you are encouraged to contact the Yellowknife RCMP at 867-669-1111.
