Delores Stevenson is grateful the RCMP will be reviewing the investigation into the death of her niece, Nadine Machiskinic.
But she doesn’t have much confidence in the process of the national police reviewing other police services.
In a news conference held with supporters Monday, she asked whether the review will change the status of her niece’s open investigation.
“Where does it stand and has anything changed since the inquest? Has anything changed with the case? Has anything changed with the justice system? Has anything changed with the justice system?” Stevenson asked.
Stevenson claimed the two men seen getting into the elevator with Machiskinic the night she died had been identified by police, a point denied by the Regina Police Service.
Police Chief Evan Bray has admitted to mistakes being made in the investigation, but remains open to working with the family to help them find closure.
He said it’s partly why the RCMP was asked to step in.
Machiskinic fell ten storeys down the laundry chute at the Delta Hotel in Regina in January 2015.
Her family does not believe Machiskininc could have climbed into the chute herself.
A coroner’s inquest held in March ruled her death “undetermined.”
