The Murder of Victoria Shachtay

The Murder of Victoria Shachtay

By Kristi Lee | Canadian True Crime

Innisfail, Alberta. A 23 year old quadriplegic single mother receives a package disguised as a Christmas gift on her doorstop. What happened next, and the story behind who sent this mysterious package, would stun the small community of Innisfail.

* Clarification: Please note that Evan Shielke was a FORMER volunteer firefighter at the time of the incident. The media incorrectly chose to focus on this aspect when reporting on him, but he clarified with me that he actually hadn't volunteered for ten years. He greatly respects what firefighters do and wants to avoid anyone thinking the misreporting came from him.
