(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Over a year after 31-year-old Amelia Corrie Sainnawap was found slain in a Cumming Street back alley, officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service have made an arrest. The person they have in custody is alleged to have murdered Sainnawap.
Sainnawap was found dead in a back alley located in the 100 block of Cumming street shortly after midnight on August 22nd, 2018. Police made multiple calls to the public seeking out information that would lead to the conviction of Sainnawap’s killer.

Appearing in a Thunder Bay bail court this morning is Neil Nishenapaise.
is charged with:

  • Second Degree Murder

He has other criminal matters already before the courts. He has been remanded into custody and will remain in jail for the time being. His next court date is October 8th, 2019.
The Justice of the Peace has no jurisdiction over murder charges, which means that the suspect will be automatically held in jail for the time being. They will have to go before a Superior Court Justice to have their bail considered.

Neil Nishinapaise will be held in jail for now.

  1. First off, it’s a travesty. A life taken for no reason. I hope her family finds closure with this arrest.
    On the other foot, these people continuously kill or assault one another on a regular basis with no end in sight. If you see these people begging for money, DON’T GIVE THEM ANY!. All they do is buy booze with it, get drunk and either drown in a river, assault or kill themselves.

  2. Bubba – I agree. Also “he will remain in jail for now”. He should be in jail for life – not only did he murder someone but the POS went over a YEAR without TURNING HIMSELF IN. That should be 5 years in itself. I hope Corrines family gets a cunt hair of peace, the people of Thunder Bay had to walk around with this murderer on the loose. Give him life and let the big boys have their way with him

  3. Gladue will have him back on the streets, knife in hand waiting for his next victim in no time.
    There’s a never ending list of excuses that Gladue likes to bring forward when these conniving murderers get caught and face the “justice” system. His parents were is residential schools, drank too much, abused him as a child, didn’t care for him etc., etc. etc. Boo f_____g hoo.
    Many of us were treated poorly as children and grew up to be good, kind people and contributing members of society. Problem with far too many FN people is that they’re soaked in self pity. Always claiming to be the victim, never wanting to make an effort to succeed in life. Just pass the bottle and drink themselves to death. Unfortunately, in their drunken stupor, they maim and kill each other on the way.
