Help solve the murder of Jamie McGuire

More than twenty years have passed since Jamie McGuire's lifeless body was found in rural Manitoba.

In late January 1994 Jamie set out from her hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario destined for Winnipeg.

About two months later, Jamie's remains were found on March 17, 1994 in a rural Manitoba setting between Portage la Prairie and Winnipeg.

She had struggled with addictions and had been involved in the survival sex trade. She also had ties to outlaw motorcycle gangs.

Jamie came from a loving family who miss her terribly and say she always had a home in Thunder Bay. Her murder left behind two children, who were denied the opportunity to know their mother.

Jamie McGuire's mother remembers that as a child growing up in Thunder Bay, Jamie experienced racism and would say she was never good enough and wasn't accepted by others. Jamie was shunned by her teachers and friends and thought she would never get a job. After this, recalls her mother, areas in Jamie' life started to decline.
At the time of her death, Jamie was 20 years old, 5'2", 100 lbs, with shoulder length black hair and brown eyes.

Project Devote, the joint task force with the Winnipeg Police Service and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police which focuses on missing and murdered exploited persons investigations, took over the Jamie McGuire investigation in 2012.

In November 2014, members of Project Devote traveled to Thunder Bay to further investigate the homicide of Jamie McGuire. They also distributed posters in and around the Thunder Bay area with the goal of generating leads.

Project Devote greatly appreciated the assistance of the Thunder Bay Police Service and of the Thunder Bay area media in raising awareness of the historical homicide of Jamie McGuire.
