Mark Jarman

Winnipeg is known for heavy drinking. But how can I guy be so wasted he assumed he killed his wife! And admitted to it! Is beyond me. What was he drinking?

In 1990, Shirley Andronowich’s body was found one morning after being raped, murdered with a concrete block, and mutilated in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Witnesses told police that Shirley and her husband Ed argued in a bar the night before.

Police first suspected Ed and arrested him after he confessed to the murder. However, the forensic evidence proved that Ed was innocent. A year later, police received a call about a man named Mark Jarman, who talked about being connected to Shirley’s murder. Police discovered that his fingerprint matched the latent print left on the concrete block. Jarman was convicted of her murder.

Mark Jarman currently lives at The Stony Mountain Pen

This story appeared on episode 4 of the Season 4 of the television series Forensic Files which was broadcast for the first time on October 27, 1999.

I really wish I could of found more about this online.

Baby Innocence

On April 20, 1984, the body of a newborn white male child was found by several children playing along the banks of the Seine River near the CNR mainline bridge in the vicinity of Notre Dame Street and Nadeau Avenue in St. Boniface an area of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
The baby’s body was found in a shallow grave near the waters edge and was partially exposed as a result of the spring run off. The baby was likely buried there in the late fall of 1983 and stayed outside all winter. It appears that the baby was a newborn and was birthed shortly before his death and burial on the river bank. The child was wrapped in towels and plastic bags.
A white male in his early 20’s was spotted in the area in the late summer or early fall of 1983 carrying an infant child, but he has never been identified
 and no one recognized the man.

Melissa Ivy Chaboyer

Known to her friends as Lissa she would care for the foster children even when they were older and moved out. She also loved spending time with her family at the family cottage. Melissa worked full time with mentally challenged adults. She also worked part time as a taxi driver in Thompson, Manitoba, Canada to get extra money for Christmas time.

On Friday night November 25th, 2005 Melissa just finished visiting her mother and getting ready to start the graveyard shift driving cab. Thompson has a reputation of being the most violent city in Canada. (Thompson has had the honor of that name three years in a row and counting) Just after midnight on the early hours of November 26th she had a call at the Thompson Arena.

Several minutes later, Melissa called her dispatch and said she was going to stop at the Ramada Hotel (now called The Burntwood Hotel)- a standard two-storey establishment at the intersection of Cree Road, with a green roof, green awnings, and a sports bar called the Regal Beagle Tavern. The hotel was only a 1.2 km drive from the Arena. It was never known if Melissa went to the arena and picked up passengers or not.

What happened next is unknown. Melissa Ivy Chaboyer was found stabbed to death in the cold morning of November 26th, 2005. Melissa’s killers fled on foot east along a parking lot at City Centre Mall. Just before 1 am another taxi driver drove by and seen Melissa’s cab. Soon after her body was found on the pavement outside of her cab. Melissa was known to be kind and one to probably not get too angry if someone had money to pay. So what was the motive? As a result of Melissa’s murder all cabs in Thompson are now equipped with cameras.

The main focus of the murder was robbery. Melissa would of known to have had hundreds of dollars on her on a Saturday morning.

15 years later and the murder is not solved.






Amber Lynn McFarland

On October 17th, 2008 24 year old Amber Lynn McFarland of Portage La Prairie, Manitoba went to a Smitty’s lounge with her boyfriend and a friend. They hung out for awhile and then moved on over to a bar in the Canad Inn. While there they decided to leave Amber’s vehicle at the Canad Inn and went to the Cat and Fiddle bar, where they continued to hang out for the night. On video it shows Amber, her boyfriend, and another friend go to the liquor vendors attached to the bar, so they could buy beer. All three of them left the store and went into the parking lot. Amber has not been seen since and her cell phone activity after that night suddenly halted. Her empty car remained in the parking lot.

Why does this seem like it could be the answer to this case or at least the reason for it happening.

The Crown attorney has withdrawn charges of assault for a Portage la Prairie man. Kelly Colin Garrioch, 39, was facing a charge of assault allegedly involving Amber McFarland on May 22, 2008. In Portage provincial court Monday, Crown attorney Larry Hodgson said because the complainant is missing, the Crown cannot proceed with the charges. “If more evidence comes to light, we can reinstate charges,” said Hodgson after the proceedings. Another charge of driving while disqualified on May 21 was also withdrawn. Both charges relied on evidence from McFarland, and her whereabouts remain unknown, explained Hodgson. McFarland, 24, has been missing since Oct. 18. Garrioch is also facing a charge of breaching a court order to have no contact with McFarland on Oct. 17. As well, he is charged with disobeying a court order on Oct. 14, involving another complainant. His case is due back in court on Feb. 9 on these remaining matters. MORE

Amber Lynn McFarland, 24, was last seen early on Oct. 18 at a bar in Portage la Prairie, Man. (RCMP handout)Amber McFarland was last seen early Saturday morning at a bar in the city of 12,700, located about 70 kilometres west of Winnipeg. Lori McFarland said her daughter is normally in frequent contact with friends and family, speaking daily with her mother and in constant communication with her twin sister, Ashley. “Amber has a loving, supportive family and a huge extended family, and we’re all very worried about her,” she said. “She’s an outgoing, vibrant, beautiful and full-of-life girl. She’s obviously a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, an auntie, a niece and a good friend to many.” McFarland received a call Saturday morning from her daughter’s place of work, saying she hadn’t shown up to let in other employees. “That’s when we started to worry,” she said. “She would never miss work without speaking to her manager.” McFarland thanked her daughter’s many friends, who have been searching for Amber and hanging posters around the city with her daughter’s picture on them. “We’re asking anyone with even the slightest bit of information to please contact the RCMP, even if that information seems to be insignificant. We’re grasping at straws trying to piece together what could have happened to Amber,” she said. “As we suspect Amber may be being held somewhere against her will, to those people involved, we’re pleading with you to do the right thing, to right this wrong and please let her come home safely to us,” she added, her voice breaking with emotion. Portage RCMP have been to the home of McFarland’s ex-boyfriend, who was charged in May with assaulting the woman. Friends have said McFarland was talking to the man at the bar the night of her disappearance.
