MANITOBA HOMICIDES

I have not made any concerted effort to index homicides outside the city perimeter. However, in some years such as this, I have included homicides that either were widely reported, occurred close to the city limits or remain unsolved. A Winnipeg Free Press article from 1970 reports 14 deaths by homicide for this year.
