(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The Wanted Wednesday program brought to you in part by the Thunder Bay Police Service adds one new wanted person to the public eye every week.
The program used to provide the public with 4 fresh wanted faces every week but after a year of what the police called “success”, the program was reduced to one face per week. Police explained the reasoning as simply as they were running low on people that fit the criteria for the program.
Anyways, without further delay, below is the Wanted Wednesday program. *drumroll*
The following people are currently WANTED on outstanding bench and/or committal warrants by the Thunder Bay Police Service.
*** DO NOT approach or confront any of the people identified ***
Members of the general public have NO AUTHORITY to detain these individuals.
If you know the whereabouts of any of these people, please contact the Thunder Bay Police Service at 807-684-1200 or 911.
If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online tips can be directed to www.p3tips.com/273

The following is from the book “Thunder Bay City’s True Murder Investigations 1882 to 2014”
On August 26 1981, John Szyja and his partner were walking down the street, when Lora seen a pair of glasses on the sidewalk. John noticed Pauline Davey wondering around yard at 319 South Vickers Street. The glasses belonged to her and she told them she’d been hit on the head from behind, and her purse and keys were missing. The young couple took the seventy-nine-year-old woman to the hospital. “Szyja’s wife, Lora said she visited Davey in the hospital Aug. 27 and noticed that the left side of her face was black and blue”. Mary Czank, was a friend of the victim and when she came by the hospital, Pauline told her someone had hit her over the head. She died October 6, and Bruce Kennedy Morrisseau was initially charged with first-degree murder. It was later dropped to second-degree.
On March 1, the trial began. Bruce was represented by Lee Baig, and he pleaded not guilty. The accused had told polce at the time of his arrest, that Pauline had falled down when he stole her purse. Both John Szyja and Mary Czank testified Pauline was alert after the attack, and indicated she’d been hit on the head and robbed of her possessions. On the third day of the trial, the accused pleaded guilty to manslaughter. “Sgr. Bill Maydo of city police told baig that he had a good rapport with the accused noticing Morrisseau was polite and never shouted or used profane language during their encounters at the police station regarding the purse snatching incident, and other previous matters.” Bruce’s parents had divorced five years prior, and according to his mother, he was doing well until he moved in with his father. “He got too much freedom and his dad was only home on the weekends as he worked in the bush.” Bruce was sentenced to six year in prison.
