On November 29, 1990, the body of Neil Christopher Stonechild, a 17-year-old Saulteaux high school student, was found frozen in a field on the outskirts of Saskatoon. Despite his family's suspicions of foul play, less than a week after he was found, the Saskatoon Police closed the investigation into his death. It would take another 10 years - and two more freezing deaths - before Neil's death was properly investigated and it was revealed to the world what many Indigenous people in Saskatoon had known for years: the Saskatoon Police had a habit of driving Indigenous people far beyond the city limits and dumping them on the roadside to walk home, or die.
