Arrest made in death of missing Nunavik woman
Raingie Tukai reported missing in May; Inukjuak man faces two charges
A 33-year-old man has been charged with murder and committing an indignity to a corpse after the body of a missing woman was discovered on a residential property in Inukjuak in early June.
Raingie Tukai, 38, had been reported missing May 5.
Quebec provincial police’s major crimes division took over the case at the beginning of May, according to Sgt. Nancy Fournier.
“On June 1, Nunavik Police Service officers were called to the property of a residence in Inukjuak following the discovery of the body of a woman,” Fournier said in an email.
The death was treated as suspicious and investigators from Quebec police’s personal crime investigation department as well as a forensic identification technician travelled to the scene to determine the cause of death.
Joanassie Weetaluktuk, of Inukjuak, was arrested June 3 in relation to the discovery. He was later charged with murder and committing an indignity to a corpse.
