For 2002, Statistics Canada reported 36 homicide victims for the province of Manitoba with 23 of those homicides occurring in Winnipeg.  In the Winnipeg table below I have identified 19 Confirmed, 1 Unsolved and 1 suspicious death.  In the Manitoba table I've identified 9 Confirmed, 6 Unsolved, 3 Disappearances, and 1 no charge laid. (TOTAL 40).

Some of the unsolved and disappearance cases may have been resolved but not reported to media.  If anyone has information related to the any of these cases please contact me at info@winnipeghomicide.org.
