Everything about Loretta Saunders' death makes me so, so sad and so angry.

Here is a heartbreaking piece by her thesis supervisor talking about how Saunders' death is a continuation of colonial violence.

Quote:
I refuse to speculate about Loretta’s death. What I do know is that our society has discarded indigenous women and girls in much the same manner for generations. These people were playing out a script that we all know intimately, but never acknowledge. I told a good friend of mine yesterday that there’s no conspiracy, there’s no mystery, Loretta will show up in a ditch like so many indigenous women before her. He was taken aback. I told him that’s the pattern.

That is so heartbreaking. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

This is so sad and awful... when I first heard about her disappearance, I was really hoping she would be ok.

Looks like they have arrested her room mates.
