Interview Charles and Pauline Hester

The Waskaganish Detachment of the Eeyou Eenou Police Force (EEPF) released a press statement on October 1st concerning the recently discovered human remains in the Waskaganish area. On May of 2013, local residents had come across a human skull, while hunting at East Point Camp. Soon after the discovery, Ontario Provincial Police were notified and secured the hunters finding. 

After sending findings to a lab, which analyzed the DNA within the samples, it was determined that the remains belonged to Mr. Peter Hester.
