Somebody needs to speak up

In 1987 Cheryl Duck was a 15-year-old girl who lived at home with her parents and sibling in Winnipeg and was known to hitchhike on occasion.

During the evening of December 4, 1987, Cheryl was seen at a number of hotels on Main Street by some of her relatives, including the Leland Hotel, the McLaren Hotel, the Occidental Hotel and possibly the Savoy Hotel.

An autopsy revealed that Cheryl had several blunt force injuries that contributed to her death.
