Project Devote has sketches related to Tania Marsden homicide, needs public assistance

December 6, 2016, Winnipeg, Manitoba –Tania Marsden was last seen alive on her 18th birthday – September 9, 1998. She was celebrating with friends at the Gordon Downtowner Motor Hotel, but after leaving her birthday party that night, she was not seen again until her body was found partially submerged in the Assiniboine River.

Tania's murder remains unsolved. Project Devote investigators are dedicated to finding justice for Tania and her family. On November 15, 2016, investigators executed a search warrant at 865 Selkirk Avenue. This warrant was in relation to Tania's murder.
