Six Nations Victims’ Families Relieved by Arrests and Asking for Privacy

March 8, 2019

Ohsweken, ON – The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and the Six Nations Police announced today the arrests of persons charged with the murders of three Six Nations members: Melissa Miller, Alan Porter and Michael Jamieson.

The families of the murder victims would like to express their sincere gratitude to the police for their dedication and hard work. Also, the families would like to thank everyone from the community who has made any effort to support this important investigation. The police continue to call out for people to come for- ward with information and the families cannot stress enough their ongoing support for the investigation.

The public and media interest in this incident has played an important role in encouraging support for the investigation. The families have previously released a video that is available on the Six Nations Justice Face- book page that shares their message and some memories of their loved ones.

At this time, the families are asking not to be contacted by the media for any follow up or interviews. The emotional burden of this experience on the families is incredibly difficult and they are presently focused on grieving and enduring with life responsibilities.

The families are being supported by Indigenous Victim Services, a program of the Six Nations Justice Department. Please note that IVS is not in a position to provide any comment to the media. All media inquiries should be directed to the Six Nations Police or the OPP – West Region.
