File Number: 104200174
Sabrina Polchies, 22, was last seen alive on July 1, 2010, and found dead in a Salisbury, N.B., apartment five days later. RCMP officials ruled no foul play was involved. But her mother, Mary Polchies, says she thinks Sabrina ran into the wrong crowd.
Mary Polchies said she received a phone call from her daughter the day she died, and could hear men yelling abusive comments at her.
"She called me and she said, 'Mom, your worst nightmare came true.'" Mary said Sabrina told her she had befriended some people, but they had become mad at her. She said Sabrina didn't know where she was.
"In the background you can hear men talking, 'What the fuck you fucking squaw.' The phone went dead and I never heard from her again. I called the cops. My poor baby laid there for three days."
Sabrina's body was found on July 5 in a Salisbury, N.B., apartment. New Brunswick RCMP said there was no foul play in her death, and the case was concluded.Her friends and family were left with plenty of questions about her death.
Sabrina told her friends on Facebook that she was leaving for Moncton to "start a new life." "Its a big world out there and I want to c what it has to offer," she wrote to her friends.
In a Facebook group titled "Restinpeace Sabrina Polchies<3," a member wrote, "Who was the last to see her alive? What happened? When are the questions going to be answered?"
Mary said she can't remember whether RCMP officials explained their findings to her, but she knows she never received a coroner's report.
"It's like a blur," she said. "I don't know what happened to her. I really want to know. My poor baby never got justice."
