Bulatci found guilty

November 19, 2009 at 2:57 pm (News)

Today a jury found Emrah Bulatci guilty of first-degree murder in the death of RCMP constable Chris Worden, who was stationed in Hay River, Northwest Territories for several years. Worden was shot and killed two years ago.

While I never met the officer when I was in Hay River for a few months in 2007, I did know several people that were friends of his. I watched Worden’s funeral procession in downtown Ottawa and sat in the overflow of the church for the service, reporting on the events for the local newspaper in NWT.

It’s a big day for Worden’s family and really, all of Hay River. The town was reeling for months after the shooting, and have launched campaigns against violence and drug use in Worden’s memory.

Bulatci will be sentenced tomorrow.
