Shocking Confession: Serial Killer Admits to Killing Four Indigenous Women

A suspected serial killer in Canada has confessed to murdering four Indigenous women. The police believe he got rid of some of their bodies by dumping them in landfills. His lawyers are saying that he has a mental disorder and wasn’t responsible for his actions.

Who is Jeremy Skibicki?

Jeremy Skibicki is facing charges for the first-degree murder of Rebecca Contois, Morgan Harris, Marcedes Myran, and an unidentified woman named Mashkode Bizhiki’ikwe (Buffalo Woman) by Indigenous leaders. Even though he pleaded not guilty, things took a surprising turn on Monday.

A Big Twist in the Case

On Monday, Skibicki admitted to killing all four women. Because of this, the prosecutors in Winnipeg agreed to have a judge-only trial, which might start as soon as Wednesday. This means that the twelve jurors who were picked last month will no longer be needed.

“At this point, the accused is now admitting that he killed all four women, and that is a new development,” said prosecutor Chris Vanderhooft.

What About the Bodies?

Skibicki is thought to have left at least two bodies at Winnipeg’s Prairie Green landfill. However, the police said they didn’t have the resources to search through all the garbage, much of which is buried under tons of clay.

Searching the landfill could take up to three years and might cost between C$84m and C$184m (US$61m-$135m). Because of this, Indigenous groups in Winnipeg have been leading marches and road blockades to push officials to approve a search.

Government Response

In March, Wab Kinew, the newly elected Manitoba premier, made it a priority to search the landfill. Following this, Canada promised tens of millions of dollars to help with the effort. The federal and Manitoba governments agreed to each contribute C$20m. But a recent report by the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs and ISN Maskwa, a company providing emergency response training, said a full search could cost C$90m and pose a “very high risk” to search teams due to asbestos.

Awareness and Justice

The confession came just one day after the national day of awareness for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, also known as “red dress day.” This day highlights the tragic reality that at least 4,000 Indigenous women and girls have been murdered or have disappeared over the past few decades. A significant report in 2019 called this a “genocide.” Despite ongoing inequities and injustices, Indigenous women continue to suffer from neglectful policies and state indifference.

What’s Next?

It’s not clear if Skibicki’s admission will help police and families find the bodies of Harris and Myran or identify Mashkode Bizhiki’ikwe. The families of the victims and the community are hoping for closure and justice in this tragic case.
