Dr. Linnea Veinotte is another alternative doctor who was found dead in an improvised grave in Canada.
Dr. Linnea Veinotte, who researched cancer, was described as very smart with a “big heart” and had a husband and two children.
Her body, partially decomposed, was found just days ago and buried in a makeshift grave near a small dirt road on the south end of the island. Last seen on Sunday, Dec. 6., Dr. Veinotte, “left the house at 8 a.m., wearing green running shorts, a purple tank top and her Adidas, with the family dog, Nico, in tow.” She was to go for a jog around a well known residential community, but instead residents later reported hearing tires -belonging to a dark-colored SUV- screech, and a loud thump. Their dog was discovered bleeding at the scene, but Dr. Veinotte was nowhere to be found.
McIntyre, who has been an officer for 31 years, says that he’s never seen a case like this. Normally, on this small island of 110,000 residents, people don’t go missing.
On Friday, just after midnight, “person of interest” Akim Frank, who appears to have a record from 2008 – for the offenses of burglary, causing harm, stealing and wounding- turned himself in. The SUV that neighbors reported seeing, one he had access to but was not his, was also found.
Authorities are still unsure whether or not to call it a crime or accident.
Countless locals say things like this just don’t happen in this quaint town with many ex-patriots and well to tourists.
We will wait to see what they discover, but so many people sent this to me that we had to at least write a tribute in Dr. Venoitte’s memory. Remember- life is short. Hug your loved ones a little tighter this holiday.
