Mother of woman found frozen days after leaving Winnipeg hospital wants answers

The mother of a 29-year-old woman who was supposed to be in a Winnipeg hospital wants to know how her daughter's body, frozen when it was discovered, ended up behind an apartment building.

"I'm really, really angry right now at the hospital that failed to keep her safe," said Eleanor Sinclair.

Sinclair said her daughter, Windy Gayle Sinclair, was found dead just days after she was taken to Seven Oaks Hospital by ambulance on Christmas Day and went missing shortly thereafter.

Winnipeg police were called to the area of the 300 block of Furby, south of Portage Avenue, after receiving a call around 8 a.m. local time on Thursday. A body was found frozen near a shed behind an apartment block.

Police remained at the scene for several days. A witness told CBC News that a tarp and heater were used to warm the area because the person was frozen to the ground.

The Winnipeg Regional Health authority is investigating and hopes to meet soon with the family.
