This article presents information regarding police mistakes in a murder case that prompted the father of the victim, to make a call for an enquiry, in Kamloops, British Columbia. Ron Ignace, the former chief of the Skeetchestn Indian Band, has had a very heavy heart since his 21-year-old son Gabriel Palmer, nicknamed as Skooks, was killed on December 30, 2002. British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Richard Blair imposed sentence on three young Native men, against the charge of manslaughter instead of second degree murder. The conduct of police investigation and framing of charges is suspicious and Ignace calls for an enquiry in this regard.
