Just a brief post as a aside from the regular scheduled program. On Saturday morning around 4:00 am a man was stabbed and killed in town. This is the town first "official"murder in around 50 years. It seems that A young man came in from Fort MacPherson to party with some friends in town, There was some drinking that ended with a very nice young man from town making some very poor choices and the death of the visitor. The police arrived shortly and the suspect had already fled the scene. It seems he spent the day hidden in town talking to his mother in Inuvik and saying goodbye before he surrendered to police late in the afternoon. Its a very sad day for both of our communities.
