On the night December 23, 1981, a 16 year old waitress working at a Donut Shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba was preparing to close for the evening.
An unknown man entered the shop and dragged her into the women’s restroom.
Her body would be discovered by a passerby by unconscious on the floor just minutes later the assault.
Although she initially survived the attack she would die in hospital a few days later.
This crime would shock the nation, put a wrongfully convicted man in prison and leave a possible serial killer on the streets for decades.
This is the murder of Barbara Stoppel.
