'Someone knows something' say PA Police about 3 decades old cold case

Jean LaChance’s body was found along the bush line in a field south of Victoria Hospital in 1991

PRINCE ALBERT – Someone knows something about the murder of Jean LaChance and Prince Albert Police are appealing to the public for information so they can solve the three decades old cold case.

LaChance’s body was found along the bush line in a field south of Victoria Hospital on Sept. 15, 1991. She was the mother of five children who were between the ages of four and 11 at the time of her murder.

“Jean’s family has spent years waiting for answers about what happened,” said Sgt. Kathy Edwardsen with the Prince Albert Police Service’s Missing Persons and Historical Crimes Unit.

“We know someone has information and we need them to tell the truth so Jean’s family can finally have closure. They deserve to know the truth.”

The Historical Crimes Unit continues to work with LaChance’s family to find answers, said Edwardsen.

Lachance was last seen the evening of Saturday, September 15, 1991 at the former Coronet bar around closing time. At the time, there were multiple witnesses who were able to assist police in providing a timeline of Jean’s actions that weekend. Investigators continue to seek additional information that could help solve this case.

If you have information about the unsolved homicide of Jean LaChance, contact police at 306-953-4222 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
