Are Tiffany Skye's gang links the clue to her disappearance and death

It's becoming another of those defining stories of Winnipeg.

A young girl leaves home and disappears. She's either never seen again or her body is eventually discovered in the river or in some secluded location. Pleas for help to nail down her last movements go unanswered. She's usually aboriginal.

This week it's the story of 17-year-old Tiffany Skye. RCMP say she was last known to be alive on Monday, August 8, 2011. Five days later, Saturday, Aug. 13, her body was recovered from the Red River near Lockport.

Police quickly determined who she was but an autopsy Aug. 16 failed to disclose a cause of death. Read that again.

She didn't drown. Which means they don't know how she died and how she wound up in the river.

Police then began adding some of the mystery to her disappearance.

They waited at least 10 days after she was found to release her identity to the press. They didn't give out her name until five days after she was buried. When they did, they gave out details of her last known whereabouts that were so obtuse they made no sense.

"Tiffany Skye was last reported to have been in the area of the Forks or Downtown Winnipeg on the afternoon or evening of Monday, August 8, 2011."

Huh? She was either here or there sometime after 12 noon? What the hell are you talking about?

The first mystery is why police can't communiciate with people.

It took Tiffany's mother to do the job of the police and to provide an intelligible answer to when Tiffany was last known to be alive.

She told the Winnipeg Sun that "(o)ne of her other daughters got a text message from Tiffany the night she went missing saying she was out with her “bros”.

So the RCMP know the exact hour that Tiffany (or somebody using her cell phone and pretending to be her) texted her sister. Can't they use technology to determine the location of the phone?

We'll leave the technological questions to them. But it's the reference to her "bros" that may help dispel some of the mystery surrounding Tiffany's disappearance and death.

Two years before her disappearance, Tiffany Skye was a member of Bebo, a social networking website popular with Winnipeg gang members and their associates.

Her site profile is titled Fuck A Bitch.

Her personal information begins:

Me, Myself, and I
    '' Tiffany maureen Skye
is the name..
   i♥nOrthSide fUk tha west.

Northside is one of the violent aboriginal street gangs plaguing Winnipeg and 15-year-old Tiffany (as she was then) was pledging her support.

It ends:

I keep it G and that's a Promise.
I may be a Bitch, but at least I'm

I keep it G means I keep it Gangsta.

Tiffany's mother said her daughter was in a foster home from the time she was an infant until her mid-teens. That means she left the foster home when she was 15 or 16, exactly the time she was professing her allegiance to thug life.

Her connections to the aboriginal gang world go deeper still. Her brother is Isaac Skye, or Isaac Skye-Young as he once wrote it. He was 36 in 2010 when Tiffany last posted on Bebo.

He also had a Bebo page.
His profile declares his colour preference:
"black and red and white all ip colors".

And he wrote glowingly about NSIP---Northside Indian Posse.

He posted his artwork (below)

And homemade posters.

Which is very ironic.

Because, you see, Tiffany and Isaac Skye are cousins of Nathan Starr, the 14-year-old boy who was killed in a fire on Mountain Avenue in 2007 which was set deliberately by two members of the Indian Posse street gang. They were trying to burn out some rival drug dealers but torched the wrong house.

Issac obviously doesn't hold a grudge. And his family is now depending on the police, Winnipeg and RCMP, to find out what happened to their Tiffany.

The point is that many of these missing girls are connected and like Tiffany Skye have dark underbellies to their sweet lives. They are heavily connected to the thug life underworld of aboriginal street gangs, which brings with it heavy drug usage and random violence.

The police and the families of these girls do their best to hide this side of the story. And by doing so, they obscure the probable answers to the disappearances.

The answers don't lie with the general community; they will be found in the aboriginal community.

Is anybody looking?

The unreported bombshell conspiracy evidence in the Trudeau/SNC-Lavelin scandal

Wow. No, double-wow. A game-changing bombshell lies buried in the supplementary evidence provided to the House of Commons Judiciary Committee by former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould. It has gone virtually unreported since she submitted the material almost a week ago. As far as we can find, only one journalist-- Andrew Coyne, columnist for the National Post--- has even mentioned it and even then he badly missed what it meant, burying it in paragraph 10 of a 14 paragraph story. The gist of the greatest political scandal in modern Canadian history is well-known by now. It's bigger than Adscam, the revelation 15 years ago that prominent members of the Liberal Party of Canada and the party itself funneled tens of millions of dollars in kickbacks into their own pockets from federal spending in Quebec sponsoring ads promoting Canadian unity. That was just venal politicians and a crooked political party helping themselves to public money. The Trudeau-Snc-Lavalin scandal is

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. There, we said it.

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. Oh, you won't find anyone official to say it. Yet . Like relatives trying to appear cheery and optimistic around a loved one that's been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the people in power are in the first stage of grief -- denial. The prognosis for Hydro was delivered three weeks ago at hearings before the Public Utilities Board where the utility was seeking punishingly higher rates for customers in Manitoba. It took us this long to read through the hundred-plus pages of transcript, to decipher the coded language of the witnesses, to interpret what they were getting at, and, finally, to understand the terrible conclusion.  We couldn't believe it, just as, we're sure, you can't--- so we did it all again, to get a second opinion, so to speak.  Hydro conceded to the PUB that it undertook a massive expansion program--- involving three (it was once four) new dams and two new major powerlines (one in the United States)---whi

Crips and Bloodz true cultural anchors of Winnipeg's aboriginal gangs

(Bebo tribute page to Aaron Nabess on the right, his handgun-toting friend on the left) At least six murder victims in Winnipeg in the past year are linked to a network of thuglife, gangster rap-styled, mainly aboriginal street gangs calling themselves Crips and Bloods after the major black gangs of L.A. The Black Rod has been monitoring these gangs for several months ever since discovering memorial tributes to victim Josh Prince on numerous pages on, a social networking website like Myspace and Facebook. Josh Prince , a student of Kildonan East Collegiate, was stabbed to death the night of May 26 allegedly while breaking up a fight. His family said at the time he had once been associated with an unidentified gang, but had since broken away. But the devotion to Prince on sites like Watt Street Bloodz and Kingk Notorious Bloodz (King-K-BLOODZ4Life) shows that at the time of his death he was still accepted as one of their own. Our searches of Bebo have turned up another five ga

Nahanni Fontaine, the NDP's Christian-bashing, cop-smearing, other star candidate

As the vultures of the press circle over the wounded Liberal Party of Manitoba, one NDP star candidate must be laughing up her sleeve at how her extremist past has escaped the scrutiny of reporters and pundits. Parachuted into a safe NDP seat in Winnipeg's North End, she nonetheless feared a bruising campaign against a well-heeled Liberal opponent.  Ha ha.  Instead, the sleepy newspeeps have turned a blind eye to her years of vitriolic attacks on Christianity, white people, and police. * She's spent years  bashing Christianity  as the root cause of all the problems of native people in Canada. * She's called for  a boycott of white businesses . * And with her  Marxist research partner, she's  smeared city police as intransigent racists . Step up Nahanni Fontaine, running for election in St. John's riding as successor to the retiring Gord Macintosh. While her male counterpart in the NDP's galaxy of stars, Wab Kinew, has responded to the controversy over

Exposing the CBC/WFP double-team smear of a hero cop

Published since 2006 on territory ceded, released, surrendered and yielded up in 1871 to Her Majesty the Queen and successors forever. Exposing the CBC/FP double-team smear of a hero cop Some of the shoddiest journalism in recent times appeared this long August weekend when the CBC and Winnipeg Free Press doubled teamed on a blatant smear of a veteran city police officer. In the latest example of narrative journalism these media outlets spun stories with total disregard for facts that contradicted the central message of the reports which, simplified, is: police are bad and the system is covering up. Let's start with the story on the taxpayer funded CBC by Sarah Petz that can be summed up in the lead. "A February incident where an off-duty Winnipeg officer allegedly knocked a suspect unconscious wasn't reported to the province's police watchdog, and one criminologist says it shows how flawed oversight of law enforcement can be." There you have it. A policeman, not

Winnipeg needs a new police chief - ASAP

When did the magic die? A week ago the Winnipeg police department delivered the bad news---crime in the city is out of control. The picture painted by the numbers (for 2018) was appalling. Robberies up ten percent in  a single year.  (And that was the good news.) Property crimes were up almost 20 percent.  Total crime was 33 percent higher than the five year average. The measure of violent crime in Winnipeg had soared to a rating of 161.  Only four years earlier it stood at 116. That's a 38 percent deterioration in safety. How did it happen? How, when in 2015 the police and Winnipeg's police board announced they had discovered the magic solution to crime? "Smart Policing" they called it.    A team of crime analysts would pore through data to spot crime hot-spots and as soon as they identified a trend (car thefts, muggings, liquor store robberies) they could call in police resources to descend on the problem and nip it. The police
