CUPE Local 2316 President, Aubrey Gonsalves, speaks with CP24 about the recommendations that CAS will put forward regarding the Katelynn Sampson case.
Katelynn was beaten for months until she died of complications from her injuries. Her battered body was found early on Aug. 3, 2008, in the apartment of a couple who were supposed to be caring for her.
The couple, Donna Irving and Warren Johnson, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in 2012 and are now serving life sentences.
The role of an inquest is twofold: to inform the public about the circumstances of a death, and to issue recommendations to prevent others from dying in similar circumstances. The inquest will conclude in the coming weeks.
