The Tragic Endings Series

In over a decade of blogging and other historical research, I have come across hundreds of stories about Manitobans whose lives were cut short due to tragedy. If they weren't related to the building or event I was writing about at the time, I sometimes bookmarked the stories with the intention of coming back to explore them in further detail at some point.

Information about these deaths comes mainly from newspaper stories of the day as, in most cases, inquest documents, court transcripts and investigators' notes are no longer available. This means that the information I will provide may include the same gaps in coverage or errors in reporting that originally appeared in the papers.

If you have additional information about any of these stories feel free to contact me at cassidy-at-mts.net.
