I will never forget, and always be grateful for, the days I spent with David Milgaard writing this profile of him several years ago. His openness and vulnerability, and his desire to help others, was so profound. https://t.co/aKjPsdhLIM— Jana G. Pruden (@jana_pruden) May 15, 2022
Although the actual cause of death is unknown, family members confirmed that he did not have COVID-19.
Milgaard was convicted of murdering a Saskatoon nursing aide when he was only 17 years old, in 1970.
In April 1992, he was released from prison after federal Justice Minister Kim Campbell requested that the Supreme Court evaluate fresh evidence in his case.
Larry Fisher, a serial rapist who had perpetrated a number of severe assaults in Saskatoon both before and after the murder for which Milgaard was convicted, was one of the new suspects.
